11 Dec 2017 - 21 Jan 2018

Göttingen, Germany

Everybody is talking about Syrian refugees these days, but the refugees themselves hardly get a chance to speak. The art-meets-science-project „Drawings of War and Flight“ therefore centres on the drawings of the Syrian artist couple Ayman Aldarwish and Nasim Kasem. In 40 artworks, the artists document and process their months-long flight across the Mediterranean Sea and the Balkans and develop a vision for a peaceful coexistence of all people, presenting an internal perspective on the migration flows that reached our societies in the last years. They thus offer a very personal and at the same time very expressive contribution to the debate on migration, Syria, and Islam. The art is embedded in an academic programme of four evening lectures that elucidate important artistic, social and cultural aspects of the artworks and the artists as well as refugees in general.
