New exhibition at IIR

Freedom of speech and its limits, security and extremism, active citizenship, political responsibility, tolerance and social issues. Is Arab society facing the similar challenges like the Czech one? And is their perception so different from ours?

Lines of Freedom: Contemporary Arab Caricature presents three major Arabian cartoonists and their activist and artistic reflection of both, everyday life and major events in the turbulent region of North Africa and the Middle East. Presented are the works of Abdul Rahe Yassir (Iraq), Khalid Albaih (Sudan) and Nadia Khiari (Tunisia).

The exhibition can be seen at the premises of the Institute of International Relations (Nerudova 3, Prague 1) on the occasion of seminars, round tables and other events – more information about the upcoming events here. In the past, the works were exhibited in DOX (Prague) or Art Map (Olomouc).

The project was prepared by Insaan: Czech-Arab Center for Cultural Dialogue, People in Need, Baraka: Center for North African and Middle East Culture and Tanween, with financial support from the Czech network of the international Anna Lindh Euro-Mediterranean Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures (ALF).
