Series: The Knowledge

A journey through contemporary visual culture, one city at a time

The Knowledge is an ongoing series of public programmes that explores visual culture from the Middle East & North Africa, one city at a time. Taking its title from London's famous black cab drivers' training, previous ‘stops' of The Knowledge have included Damascus (2009), Tehran (2010), Alexandria (2011) and Jerusalem (2012).

Each programme features a dynamic set of activities - from exhibitions to artist talks - presenting emerging artistic networks, strategies and projects that explore the recent cultural and social trajectory of each city, steeped in history and shaped by current events.
