Habibi, what revolutions of love?

From the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris to the Mediterranean Museum in Stockholm. On February 23, 2024, Habibi - the Revolutions of Love exhibition opens, where contemporary artists from the Arab world, Iran and Afghanistan challenge gender norms and explore relationships to the body and public space.

Whether you are an art enthusiast, a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, an activist, or simply curious about the intersection of art and identity, we invite you to engage in critical conversations and gain new insights into the transformative potential of queer art.
