9780863567872: Syria Speaks: Art and Culture from the Frontline

In Syria, culture has become the critical line of defence against tyranny. Villagers have joined the cultural frontline alongside urban intellectuals, artists, writers and filmmakers and to create art and literature that challenge official narratives. With contributions by over fifty artists and writers, both established and emerging, Syria Speaks explores the explosion of creativity and free expression by the Syrian people. They have become their own publishers on the Internet and formed anonymous artists collectives which are actively working in their country's war zones. The art and writing featured in this book, including literature, poems and songs as well as cartoons, political posters and photographs, document and interpret the momentous changes that have shifted the frame of reality so drastically in Syria.

Recensione:

Winner English Pen Award

' Syria Speaks is a remarkable achievement and remarkable book - a wise, courageous, imaginative and beautiful response to all that is ugly in human behaviour. This extraordinary anthology gives a voice to those we may have forgotten, or whom we may classify as simply passive and silent victims. The people shown living, dreaming and speaking here are far more than victims and only silent if we refuse to hear them.' A.L.Kennedy

'This extraordinary collection says more about Syria than many months of newspaper reading has told me. It's a deep look into a dynamic and exciting culture in painful transition - a culture where artists are really stepping up to the plate and making a difference. If Syria has been a bit of a mystery to you, you need to read this book.' Brian Eno

The impact [the images] have on the page makes one imagine how much the originals unsettled the Syrian government ... Syria Speaks tells us with inspirational force how the Syrians have found the ability the speak out Times Literary Supplement

'Essential reading for anyone interested in human rights or a better understanding of the current conflict. Comprising essays, stories, poems, songs, photographs and cartoons, this impressive collection shows how artists and activists operate under repressive regimes and how their work can become tools of resistance in war ... Syria Speaks pays tribute to many extraordinary acts of courage and shines a light on the dark deeds of a brutal regime.' Lucy Popescu, Independent on Sunday

'The courage of Syria's artistic community is featured in Syria Speaks' Kirsty Lang, Front Row BBC R4

'People will be blown away by this book ... a wonderful volume ... Extraordinary' Janice Forsyth, The Culture Studio, BBC Radio Scotland

'Filled with treasures: short stories by Samar Yazbeck and Khaled Khalifa, powerful and terrifying illustrations and digital prints by Khalil Younes and Sulafa Hijazi, posters from the anonymous Syrian artists collective, a letter from the jailed director of the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression, Mazen Darwish, and many other informative articles, fascinating artwork and writing.' Publishing Perspectives

'An invaluable and deeply moving testimony to resistance ... this work clamours for liberty and turns its back not only on tyranny but on religious division.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent

'An English Pen Award winner, this anthology forms a rich, creatively diverse motif sublimely representative of a country and its people awash in strife and insurgency.' Kirkus

'A remarkable collection' -- The Art Newspaper
