In Whose Name?

Abbas invites us, through 32 prints, to a journey among the believers. This journey starts on September 11, 2001 when Abbas watches live on Siberian television the tragedy taking place thirteen time zones away. A year later, confronted with a giant cross erected on the ruins of the World Trade Centre, he asks: “does one form of religious intolerance lead to another?”, and embarks on a seven year project completed in the book “In Whose Name?“”

Also, if you’re luckily able, don’t miss the corresponding exhibit of Abbas’ prints at Magnum’s Paris gallery, running though October 31st.

WHERE: 19 rue Hégésippe Moreau, Paris, 75018
