Tag 2 - Revolution Now!
mit Fadi Jomer u.a.
Before the revolution, Syrians saw their country as a blend of beauty, pain and fear, in which people lacked rights and their dignity was »below the human-rights threshold.« Now the revolution begins. The state reacts immediately: Checkpoints are erected. Prices rise. Demonstrations move through the installation – and the theatrical counter-reaction doesn’t take long to appear either. The band Nashama has collected the revolution’s most popular songs in a songbook, which they accentuate with electronic beats – forming a carpet of sound for the revolutionary mood. Prominent activist/artists take over the panel: The singer Samih Chokier, who lives in French exile, and the author Fadi Jomer share their views.
