The collection, which was jointly researched and collected by the two museums, features works by emerging and established artists living in the region or in diaspora, from Tunisia to Iran.

Images respond to the social challenges and political upheavals faced by the Middle East over the last 30 years, with the exhibition at Birmingham paying particular attention to issues of migration and the representation of women.
