This display presents ancient and modern perspectives and attitudes towards the territories, landscapes and man-made borders of the Middle East.

The objects range from the oldest surviving evidence of a border dispute over four and a half thousand years ago to contemporary photography by the German artist Ursula Schulz-Dornburg.

Together, these objects focus on a universal component of history – the tendency of man-made borders to generate conflict. The material on display will challenge visitors to question the artificial and fragile nature of man-made borders all over the world.
