Iraq’s Modern Art Collection,
Waiting to Re-emerge.

by Steven Lee Myers (New York Times)

Report about collecting and archiving art in war zones

What’s left of Saddam Hussein’s showcase collection of 20th-century Iraqi art is crammed into three dingy galleries of a formerly grand museum on Haifa Street here. The rest of the building once known as the Center for Contemporary Art has become a warren of offices and cubicles fortified by bricks, barbed wire and sandbags and closed to the public.
