Syrian Artists in Exile
Dunian al Dahan & Corinne Rondeau
How do you live in mourning for your country when you are an artist? How do you live the shock of discovering another world, another artistic culture? How to understand a work from another tradition and another history, inhabited by war and violence? These questions were asked in turn to the Syrian artists gathered around the exhibition Où est la maison de mon ami? and to their French contacts. In this choral book intersect the history of Syria, the Revolution and exile, the intimate stories of the artists, the gaze of art critic Corinne Rondeau and the testimony of the curator Dunia al Dahan.
