The FORUM for new arab art was launched in Autumn 2012 as a platform for new artistic production in the Arab world. The FORUM is an ongoing, interdisciplinary project that seek to follow new developments and approaches in contemporary visual practice in the Arab countries. The FORUM presents a series of events throughout the year, such as exhibitions, video and film screenings, performances, interventions and artists’ talks. A selection of artists from other regions will occasionally be invited to exchange projects.

The FORUM for new arab art is organized by zakharif projects and Art-Lab Berlin.

The first major event that launched the project was the exhibition "Alien Body", accompanied by a video screening program in December 2012. In 2013, we launched a series of "Video Dialogues", during which two video artists are invited to show a work of recent or older date, that explore a similar theme from different angles.
