"82"

exhibition opening

02.11.2017, 00:00 Uhr

Picture by Hamid Sulaiman
To read and see Hamid Sulaiman’s stories and images in Freedom Hospital (published in English by Jonathan Cape in 2017) is to be transported to the center of everyday life in war-torn Syria. With his expressive, multi-layered black and white artworks the artist offers a powerfully different perspective to the images of Syria generally depicted in Western media. His work reflects the complex backgrounds of the events in Syria. At ECCHR Sulaiman will present original paintings and graphics from the upcoming graphic novel 82 on the Hama massacre of 1982.
 
Sulaiman, originally from Damascus, works as a painter and illustrator. He fled Syria in 2011 and now lives in Paris and Berlin. His artwork has received several awards and been shown in exhibitions around the world.
