During his residency at Delfina Foundation, collector Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi uses Ala Younis’s current exhibition at Delfina as a starting point to discuss current research and practice around Modernisms in art, architecture and urban space.

Taking Younis's exploration of the history of a gymnasium in Baghdad, designed by Le Corbusier and named after Saddam Hussein, this mini-symposium brings together leading scholars and architects to discuss the history and future of modern architecture in Iraq and the wider Gulf Region.

Additional speakers will be announced shortly.
