Common Values, Local Languages


How are the diversity of regional television shows produced worldwide adapted to find favor with Arabic speaking audiences? Which cultural cues are chosen to be shared, and which ones are edited out?

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.
