Manaf Halbouni - Artist Talk

About Manaf Halbouni - Artist Talk

German-Syrian artist Manaf Halbouni’s sculpture Rubble Theatre is a highlight of this year’s Refugee Festival Scotland. It recreates a scene of destruction in Syria, featuring the rubble of a bombsite and an abandoned car.

Join us for a conversation with Halbouni, who studied at art school in Syria and then moved to Germany a few years before the war. In 2017, far-right groups in Germany protested against his installation Monument, which erected three, upended buses at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin and at the Frauenkirche in Dresden, in homage to a barricade of buses that protected civilians from sniper fire in Aleppo. Vehicles (and most frequently cars) are a repeating theme in Halbouni’s work – whether as a means of escape or as a mobile home. ‘With the car, a symbol of mobility, I try to reach a place that I can call home to take root again,’ he says.

This is a free but ticketed event.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Manaf Halbouni - Artist Talk are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
