Your ghosts are mine: an exhibition Qatar Museums is producing, to coincide with the 60th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale, bringing the visions of dozens of filmmakers and video artists from the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia to the art world’s most prestigious stage. 

The exhibition, entitled Your ghosts are mine: Expanded cinemas, amplified voices, on view at ACP - Palazzo Franchetti from 19 April to 24 November, will present films and video installations that focus on experiences of community life, recollection, exile, and transnational crossings.

The exhibition is produced by Qatar Museums and co-organized by Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, the future Art Mill Museum and Doha Film Institute (DFI). Curated by Matthieu Orléan with the collaboration of Majid Al-Remaihi and Virgile Alexandre, with exhibition design by Federico Martelli and Clément Périssé of Cookies design studio, the exhibition will offer an all-encompassing, immersive experience, through a selection of films produced, co-produced or initiated by the Doha Film Institute, as well as video works from the collections at Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art and the future Art Mill Museum. This films exploration will span genres including fiction, documentary, animation and memoir, often blending invented narrative with fact, modernity with tradition and spirituality with postcolonial sensibilities. The dynamic scenography will propose the visitors a narrative journey through a series of ten galleries, each dedicated to a theme such as deserts (cradles of civilization and places of rebirth), ruins (relic of culture), women voices, borders (demarcations between allowed and forbidden places) and exile.

Dedicated only to films and videos in all their different forms and formats, polyphonic and dematerialized, this exhibition will be a tribute to the power of film as a main channel for experiences and discussions across the borders sprung up outside of the western world.
