The exhibition Damascus Retake presents works by the Syrian artist and filmmaker Reem Al-Ghazzi. In her work, Al-Ghazzi focuses on the daily lives of ordinary people in the Arab world and offers a voice to those who remain remote from structures of power and who are therefore seldom heard.

The exhibition Damascus Retake takes place in the frame of the FORUM for new arab art exchange program. The FORUM is an ongoing, interdisciplinary project that seeks to follow new developments and approaches in contemporary visual practice in the Arab countries. The exchange with artists from other regions and particularly the international art scene of Berlin plays an important role in its activities. It presents a series of events throughout the year, such as exhibitions, video and film screenings, performances and artists’ talks.
