Syria Speaks: Art and Culture from the Frontline

by Malu Halasa, Zaher Omareen and Nawara Mahfoud (Editors)
£12.99   paperback  Saqi Books (2014)

Syria Speaks: Art and Culture from the Frontline by Malu Halasa, Zaher Omareen and Nawara Mahfoud (Editors) In Syria, culture has become a critical line of defence against tyranny.
 
Syria Speaks is a celebration of a people determined to reclaim their dignity, freedom and self-expression. It showcases the work of over fifty artists and writers who are challenging the culture of violence in Syria. Their literature, poems and songs, cartoons, political posters and photographs document and interpret the momentous changes that have shifted the frame of reality so drastically in Syria.
 
Moving and inspiring, Syria Speaks is testament to the courage, creativity and imagination of the Syrian people.
