Domain of Conciliation

Dar Al Sulh (Domain of Conciliation): Dar Al Sulh is a unique supper club by the artist Michael Rakowitz, in collaboration with Regine Basha and Dr Ella Habiba Shohat to be hosted by the Mosaic Rooms. Set in the garden, guests can enjoy an al-fresco three-course meal featuring the artist Michael Rakowitz’s Iraqi-Jewish grandmother’s recipes. Using ingredients, combinations of flavours, and tableware specific to a population that are no longer served in Iraq today, these dishes reflect a period when 'Jews were once Arabs too.' In between each course Michael Rakowitz, Regine Basha and Dr. Ella Habiba Shohat will offer personal reflections, toasts and interventions. Basha’s 'Tuning Baghdad' project, which presents archival music from Iraqi Jewish musicians from the period, will feature throughout the evening too. Taking place 6-8 July, 2017 at the Mosaic Rooms, Tower House, 226 Cromwell Road, London SW5 0SW​.
