The Collection of Y. Hayek - Series 1, works by Salah Saouli

This project creates a conceptual "museum of contemporary art", consisting of copies/fakes of key works of modern and contemporary art, carried out by artists selected especially for this project. The aim is to invite a critical reflection on notions of authenticity and documentation and to address the lack of relevant art institutions, museums and public collections in the region as carriers of art historical knowledge and reference points of the local artistic and cultural heritage.
