The exhibition contains objects illustrating the changing role of radio broadcasting and reception in the United Arab Emirates between 1950-1990. In the #UAE , listening took place at first only in the home and in cafes. At home the reception room is called the majlis, which translates literally as ‘place to sit’, and a house’s majlis was a place of learning and collective gathering, it is still a cornerstone of Emirati culture. As much as majlis can refer to a place of social gathering and informal learning, it can denote a formal legislative assembly. ‘The Box in the #Majlis ’ progresses on to more portable radio sets and to car #radios , which marked the beginning of commercial broadcasting and the proliferation of stations in the early 1970s. ____________________________ More info & how to listen on sixpillars.org ____________________________ #blind #partiallysighted #museumtour #museumaudio #sharjahart #saf #sharjah #radio #broadcast #listening #arab #arabhistory #worldradio #airwaves #gulfhistory #middleeast #onair #shellac #vintage
