Shaheen Merali, director of the Visual Arts Department at the House of World Cultures, offers an introduction to the art of communicating culture, taking the examples of the exhibitions and the film program Selves Made Strange. What makes for a successful transfer? What criteria do curators use in making their selection? Of Indian descent, the curator and artist’s works deal primarily with issues of cultural difference. He was born in Dar-es-Salaam, spent many years in London, taught at the Central Saint Martin's School of Art and Design and has done research at the University of Westminster.
