In times of crisis and war, art plays an important role in overcoming and handling loss and in creating an identity. Art is a means against social alienation and for bridging communicative trenches. Since the beginning, the Syrian uprising and its later development to a political, social and humanitarian crisis have been accompanied by an art movement. In a short period of time, political and social appreciation of art transformed and artists gained in importance.
The meeting of nine Syrian artists will further creative exchange and self-reflection. The results of the workshop will be presented to the public at Mansion from 27th to 30th September 2014.
Lebanese artist and Mansion’s manager Ghassan Maasri will give a lecture on his conception of art and its impact on the process of overcoming the Lebanese civil war (1975 - 1990).
