Power and Influence


Regional political and foreign diplomacy may always affect how we watch, even if we do not realize it. The form and content of dramas made for global distribution and what gets shown where, may be drastically changed if a cultural producer is deemed a dangerous influence.

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.
