Texts by Assim Abdul Amir and Silvia Naef
This volume explores the principal trends of modern and contemporary art in Iraq, through some 400 works in the private collection of Hussain Ali Harba, an Iraqi architect and designer.
The publication, edited and curated by Mary Angela Schroth, recounts the story of the acquisitions of the private collection of Hussain Ali Harba, which began with a painting executed in the 1970s by Fa’iq Hassan, one of the protagonists of Irachi modern art and ends with experimental contemporary artists such as Adel Abidin.
Born in Babylon (Iraq) in 1961 and resident in Turin (Italy) since 1979, Harba received his first artwork from his father at the age of 15, and through the years has become one of the most impassioned Iraqi collectors in the world. Together with his family, he is building a private museum in Babylon that will one day permanently house this major collection.  The book bears witness to Harba’s work of dedication and conservation related to the artistic patrimony of his native country.
• Through the story of the acquisitions of the collection, this book bears witness to Harba’s work of dedication and conservation related to the artistic patrimony of his native country.
