When The Snow Melts: The World Wars, Empire And Muslim Soldiers

About

New Art Exchange
Friday 27 September - Tuesday 31 December 2019 | 9am - 6pm
Free

Nearly four million Indians were -'volunteers' in the British Army during the two World Wars. The Great Wars were truly global events, yet the process of public remembrance is often performed through the prism of national identity.

Working in collaboration with local Muslim families with connections to the Second World War, artists Jagdish Patel and Farida Makki have used personal memory and archival material to pose questions about the process of war memorialisation, empire and its interconnections to our present-day identities.

When The Snow Melts is part of Himmah's Heritage Lottery Funded, Muslim Memory Project. This charts the stories of Nottingham's Muslim communities involved in the Second World War and will lead to the production of a substantial publication in 2020.
