Breaking News? how the smartphone changed journalism
January 13 - May 29
Breaking News? how the smartphone changed journalism explores the production, distribution and consumption of news, and how smartphones are reshaping the practice of journalism and recasting the role of the audience.
Part of the museum’s mission is to offer visitors a variety of thoughts and opinions on discussions explored in exhibitions. Visitors can hear different points of view from journalists, academics and creatives from Kenya, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, UK, and the US. The exhibition also features loans from a number of international media organisations including the BBC, The New York Times, ITN, Al Jazeera, and Bloomberg as well as from individual journalists and photographers, and private collections from the UK and Japan.
The exhibition was created by the museum’s curator Jack Thomas Taylor and a team of international, regional, and local specialists, including Northwestern Qatar students.
Sunday to Wednesday: 12:30 pm to 5 pm
Saturday: 10 am to 5 pm
Please note that the exhibition is open for walk-in visitors – no ticket or pre-booking required. Booking is required for groups of at least 15 people. Full bilingual publication accompanies the exhibition, available in the Media Majlis bookstore and online.
