Restoring a Sense of Place in Post Conflict Societies—The Art of Wafaa Bilal

Dr. M. Troy Burnett

In this presentation, Dr. M. Troy Burnett, Professor of Geography at Mount Royal University, will discuss the spatial theories and themes evinced in the art of Wafaa Bilal. According to Dr. Burnett, “There is more to Bilal’s 168:01 project than nobly replacing looted books—there is the broader attempt to restore ‘sense of place’ and community to a war-torn society.”

Registration recommended.
