In the 12th episode of the ART Informant, Isabelle Imbert welcomes Nicoletta Fazio, Curator of Iranian Lands in the Museum of Islamic Art of Doha, Qatar. Since she joined the museum in 2018, she and the team have been working on the relaunch of the galleries, scheduled for the end of this year. Before moving to Doha, Nicoletta spent several years working in the Museum fur Islamische Kunst in Berlin, so it was interesting talking about the transition between Germany and Qatar, as well as the differences in curatorial practices, especially around religious themes. Through this conversation, Nicoletta opened a window into the mind of a curator!
