Qantara. Mediterranean Heritage. Transversality between West and East

From October 2008 to January 2009

Pavilion of al-Andalus and Science. Parque de las Ciencias. Granada

No. of exhibits: 20

With the participation of 16 countries.

This exhibition was one of the end products of the European project Qantara, comprised within the European Commission’s Euromed Heritage Program and led by the Institute of the Arab World of Paris. The objective of this project was to create a database (of around 1,000 entries including texts, videos, pictures, etc. of places, monuments and archaeological objects) on the Arab-Muslim heritage during the Middle Ages, highlighting the transversal view of the Mediterranean cultural legacy, where the repetition and recurrence of architectural, monumental, artistic and aesthetic forms throughout the Mediterranean could be recognized. Partners from eight countries participated in the project: France, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Spain, being the El legado andalusí Foundation the Spanish partner.

The exhibition wished to capture this idea: to underline the transversality of culture and art in the Mediterranean. For this purpose, exhibits from different museums were gathered, both from Spain and from the other participating countries.
