Today the art exhibition “Culture in defiance: continuing traditions of satire, art and the struggle for freedom in Syria” opens at Prince Claus Foundation in Amsterdam. It will stay open until Nov 2012 and we`ll host a number of events (lectures, film screenings, etc) there over the next months.
This is the cool publication that Malu Halasa has put together for the exhibition. It really looks great and includes lots of essays that explore different forms of creativity and art coming out from the Syrian revolution.
My contribution, “Towards active citizenship in Syria”, looks at user-generated-content in the context of the uprising and, particularly, to the “raised hands” campaign.
