Following her exhibition at Galerie Tanit, Munich You Will Rise Up Again that was dedicated to Beirut, Mojé Assefjah has been preparing a new body of work carrying the same message, Hope, that is exhibited at Tanit’s hors-les-murs space in Beirut.

Hope and a peaceful longing to a future you aspire to is what you feel when standing in front of Assefjah’s work; “The paintings are an invitation for the eye to look through a window opened to a nostalgic space,” the artist says.
