Media Majlis is the first museum in the Arab world dedicated to the content of media, journalism, and communication. The current exhibition 'From Visionaries to Vloggers' discusses and uncovers the shifts in cultural patterns, where evolutions in media and its uses are informed by the past, which is constantly re-referenced, re-interpreted, and re-imagined for new audiences. Some social issues have been tackled for hundreds, in some cases thousands, of years in the region including autocracy, representations of women, freedom of expression, and lack of civil liberties. The medium may change and develop but the messages of change and [r]evolution is ever present.
