About

“You are eating a dying language from the plate of a ghost.” Dar Al Sulh (Domain of Conciliation) is a supper club with a difference hosted by the artist Michael Rakowitz in collaboration with Regine Basha and Dr. Ella Habiba Shohat. Join him in The Mosaic Rooms for a three-course meal, tasting dishes from the recipe book of his Iraqi-Jewish grandmother. The ingredients, flavours and even the tableware reflect the period when “Jews were once Arabs too”. In between each course, the artist and collaborators curator Regine Basha and Dr. Ella Habiba Shohat provide personal reflections. These will take the form of historical and musical insights, including from Regine Basha’s Tuning Baghdad project. “Rather than stand on the sidelines, Michael Rakowitz takes a can-do approach to political art.” THE GUARDIAN
