As I wrote in my book The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, the peoples, cultures and countries that form the basis of this wonderful exhibition are no exotic backwater, no obscure wastelands. Far from being on the fringe of global affairs, they lie at its very centre – as they have done since the beginning of history.

After the Venice Biennale we are planning a traveling exhibition (opening February 11, 2021)
presenting a selection of the artworks produced for this project.
We plan to bring this exhibition to key destinations in Central Asia and Europe in order to engage local communities in thoughtful reflection about what Europe-Asia connectivity means and implies in today’s context.
