“WEITWINKEL Global Perspectives on Collections“
cordially invites to
Voices from Afghanistan – the consequences of the political turmoil for the arts
A Digital Talk with
Khadim Ali, Artist
Prof. Dr. Stefan Weber, Director, Museum for Islamic Art, Berlin
Thursday, 9 September 2021, 1 – 2.15 PM (Berlin time)
The event will be held in English. 

Khadim Ali (b. 1978, Quetta, Pakistan) belongs to the Hazara tribe from Afghanistan. Ali had an artist studio in Kabul Afghanistan from 2005 until 15 August 2021 when it was disbanded to protect the lives of the artists and artisans who have been his long term collaborators. The studio was a hub for the renewed artistic revival that was surging through Afghanistan, a place of research that facilitated exchange and sharing of traditional arts and craft with students, scholars and community groups. From this base Khadim also taught and engaged with key organisations and institutions throughout Afghanistan to support and steward the resurgence of traditional artisanal crafts.
The conversation between Khadim Ali and Stefan Weber offers a platform to hear first-hand about the current political turmoil in Kabul. The talk will unveil the consequences to the arts sector and discuss the social role of museums today.
