I’ve shown so many images of this impressive show, so I won’t say too much. Mostly that if you are in Berlin in the next week (until December 9th, 2012), you must check this show out. Organized by the Berlin-based studio EPS51, they have brought together an array of designers, artists, and activists from across the Arab world in a remarkable way. Having now organized several exhibitions myself, I can more fully appreicate the efforts they put in and how outstanding the results are.
I finally visited the show after meeting one of the organizers, Ben Wittner, at the Babel symposium earlier in the week. The evening I stopped by there was a lecture by Huda Smitshuijzen-AbiFarès from Amsterdam. She spoke on Arabic Typography as an Agent of Resistance. If these topics interest you, there will be a few more: one on December 6th by Sandra Hetzl, Gabriela M. Keller, and guests from Syria; and the finissage on December 9th will host Nadine Chahine, Eps51, Pascal Zoghbi, and Antje Weitzel.
