Moving Stories

Moving stories is a show on now at the British Museum.
"Humanity has moved across the globe for a million years and more. Its footprint is ever changing. There are many reasons why humans leave their homes – war and conflict, famine and death, love and hope. But in those circumstances, what do you gain? What do you leave behind?"
Ali’s Boat is an artist’s book by Sadik Kwaish Alfraji (b. 1960) and was inspired by the artist’s encounter with his 11-year-old nephew who, on a visit to Baghdad in 2009, gave Alfraji a drawing of a boat, with the words ‘I wish this boat takes me to you.’
