About my artwork
Mohammed Al-Sadoun was born in southern Iraq in 1958. After completing his undergraduate education in Baghdad, he earned a master’s degree from the University of Hartford in Connecticut in 1986 and received a doctorate from Ohio State University in 1999. He currently teaches as a professor at universities in the United States and the Middle East. He feels called upon to condemn war, terror and aggression with his art. He also sees it as his duty to do this as an Iraqi artist, although – or rather, because – he has not been able to see his family and friends in Iraq since 1989 and must rely on communication via Facebook, a fate he shares with nearly all Iraqi artists and intellectuals, 90% of whom have left their country.

After staging exhibitions and winning art prizes in Baghdad, France and Japan, where he lived and worked for 3½ years, and since 1993 in the USA and the United Arab Emirates, primarily in Abu Dhabi, this year he is a guest artist-in-residence in the Domagk Ateliers under a grant from the Cultural Office of the State Capital City of Munich. He will return to the United States, as a US citizen, in August. With this exhibition, he makes a bold and significant mark. In June of this year, he participated as one of the artists in a group showing at the Atelier House to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Domagk Ateliers. Today’s one-artist show, which will continue for another five days, presents the core of Mohammed Al-Sadoun’s artistic oeuvre.
