An exhibition of art from the 'Axis of Evil'



As well as official national pavilions, Venice is home to a number of ‘collateral’ exhibitions and events, often representing people and places that wouldn’t normally get a look in. Former Tate curator Jemima Montagu is presenting an exhibition of work by artists from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan – famously caricatured by George W. Bush as the ‘Axis of Evil’. She talks about the thriving visual culture of the region.
