11.00am:
  • Co-existent Ruins: Exploring Iraq’s Mesopotamian past through contemporary art
  • CO-EXISTENT RUINS seeks to address how it might be possible to re-generate an engagement with four identified Mesopotamian ancient heritage sites (Ur, Babylon, Nippur, and Nimrud) by local Iraqi artists in post - conflict Iraq. These sites, while still providing security guards and space for international archaeological research, have become derelict during the recent traumatic wars and conflict in Iraq.

5.30pm:
  • The Lost Archive: Traces of a Caliphate in a Cairo Synagogue
  • Marina Rustow (Princeton University)
  • Beginning with government documents before the Fatimids and paper’s westward spread across Asia, Rustow reveals a millennial tradition of state record keeping whose very continuities suggest the strength of Middle Eastern institutions, not their weakness.
