Musalsalat Elements


What is a musalsal? Musalsalat share some stylistic features, despite their variety, but it is the way viewers watch, engage, and react to musalsalat that unites them.

This animation, featured in the exhibition The World is Watching Musalsalat, introduces you to the main musalsalat elements.

Musalsalat, plural; musalsal, singular.
Meaning ‘chained, continuous’.

This and other animation included in the exhibition The World is Watching Musalsalat (spring 2023) were commissioned by the museum to introduce different issues discussed in the exhibition. The museum worked with animation company Cognitive to create short and informative explanations from which further exploration of the accompanying displayed musalsalat and other television series, historical material and interviews could flow.
