Tamara Chalabi
“Tanks, bombs, rockets, blood. It’s not about whitewashing that but rather about giving a voice to human beings who have been overlooked.”
Tamara Chalabi is an Iraqi‑British historian, art expert and chairman of the Ruya foundation, an NGO that aids and enriches culture in Iraq and organises the Iraq Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, with the aim of countering narratives of violence with information about Iraq’s contemporary culture.
