In the organizer's words:

The exhibition "Inner Structures - Outer Rhythms: Contemporary Arabic and Persian Graphic Design" at the MK&G presents current developments in graphic design and Arabic typography through selected works by designers* from North Africa and West Asia and the diaspora. On display are posters, videos, animations, murals, installations, books and fonts. As the most important design element in Islamic cultures, Arabic letters always reflect the cultural dialog as well as the changes and challenges of a society. The designers draw on various Islamic traditions and regional aesthetics and address pressing socio-political issues of our time, such as gender equality and freedom of expression.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Huda Smitshuijzen AbiFarès, graphic designer, academic and founding director of the Khatt Foundation. Founded in Amsterdam in 2004, the Khatt Foundation is a non-profit cultural institution that promotes contemporary graphic design and acts as a network and platform for designers from North Africa and West Asia. Other goals of the foundation include the promotion of design research, interdisciplinary collaboration and the creation of a specialized knowledge center for contemporary design.
