Under the patronage of the Kuwait National Council for Culture, Arts, and Letters, the Museum of Modern Art in Kuwait hosts the Museum of Manufactured Response to Absence (MoMRtA). Curated by Ala Younis, MoMRtA is conceived in response to the present-day absence of Palestinians in Kuwait, who formed a vibrant community from their arrival in 1936 until their departure en masse following the Iraqi invasion in 1990, and of documents relating to their history.
The Museum of Modern Art in Kuwait will also be hosting a Sound installation by Tarek Atoui. Entitled “Unplified” the installation Inspired by Ghassan Kanafani's novella, Men in the Sun, which is a work of Palestinian literature in the Kuwaiti consciousness.
