Art Trail Guided Tour of Media Majlis and Media Innovation Lab

The guided tour of Media Majlis will allow participants to familiarize themselves with the first museum in the Arab world dedicated to the content of media, journalism, and communication. The current exhibition, "Arab Identities," explores this question in relation to the interplay between identity and film. The exhibition creates a context in which visitors can explore their own understanding of identity, while considering how images in film have shaped, and been shaped by, notions of Arab identity. Film clips, publicity material and original cinema posters relating to more than 150 films are featured in the exhibition. Spanning over a century of global filmmaking, these films have captured, constructed, projected, or referenced these notions. After the tour of the main exhibition space, participants will have an opportunity to see virtual reality works which are included in Northwestern University in Qatar's Media Innovation Lab.
