The Museum of Emotion collects together many of the best sculptures, installations, collages, videos and photographs from the last twenty years of Kader Attia's career.

Attia regards himself as both an activist as well as an artist, and tries to create works that make us undertake a "real, fundamental dialogue" about the world in which we live.

Two of his favourite themes are exploring how colonialism continues to shape the way we represent and engage with non-Western cultures, and also how the idea of repair can be both a physical and symbolic act. The exhibition includes many objects that have been 'repaired' by the artist using techniques and materials employed in non-Western cultures.
