Exhibition: Ma’Dan, la vie des marais mésopotamiens

The Pavillon de l’Eau follows its reflexion on the scarcity of water resources, through its photographic exhibition “Ma’Dan, la vie des marais mésopotamiens” (“Ma’Dan, the life of Mesopotamian marshes”), organised until March 31st, 2018. It is the work of the French and Iraqi artist Sarah Hassan that lead us to discover the history of Mesopotamian marshes located in the South of Iraq. Because of the global warming, these marshes with exceptional richness dried up. Since then, the local populations act in order to preserve these unique archaeological sites, old marshes, also responsive to climate changes. They also are threatened by the regional conflicts. Thanks to this free photographic exhibition, the visitors are invited to discover the unknown side of rural Iraq and engage themselves in water protection, which is essential to all life.

Exhibition “Ma’Dan, la vie des marais mésopotamiens”, from 11th October, 2017 to March 31st, 2018.
Open from Monday to Friday from 10a.m. to 6p.m.
Closed on week-ends and on holidays.
Free entry.
