In this video, Mehdi Moutashar talks viewers through his artistic inspirations, including memories of childhood and the constant visceral search for the meaning of home.

Introspection as Resistance, on display at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art until 5 March 2023, is Mehdi Moutashar’s first solo show in Qatar. It showcases new and existing works from the Iraqi artist, in a variety of mediums, exploring themes within geometric abstraction, and connecting these to memories of ‘home’, all while allowing visitors the freedom to self-interpret.
