This panel is devoted to an exploration of multimodal, visual staging of meaning in the Middle East and in multicultural European societies. Presentations will discuss examples of visual inventiveness in different and multimodal medial contexts, varying both in terms of motivations, positions of power and visual strategies employed. The panel invites reflection on how the study of current visual staging of meaning may contribute to analyzing the complex and intriguing interrelationship of identity processes, artistic inventiveness and religio-political constraints in Middle Eastern societies and beyond.
