At two years in and two years on the Aga Khan Museum has established itself as a museum beyond frontiers.
UNESCO extended its patronage to the Syria: A Living History exhibition and together with the unprecedented partnership between seven renowned international institutions from around the world, the Museum’s Syria programme provided a wealth of insight into the country’s unique and dynamic past and gives hope for the future.
Through the framing and timing of the exhibition, the Aga Khan Museum (AKM) compelled us to see Syria not simply as a site of regional conflict but as a global crucible of cultural exchange and potential reconciliation, hence celebrating Syria’s cultural diversity, historical continuity, resourcefulness, and resilience.
