Professor m. cooke presents another – forgotten – dimension of the Syrian civil war. The original and continued protests of its artists and activists at home and in exile, which show their decade-long struggle for freedom under the Asad regime. The Arab Spring brought forth a revolution in the digital and plastic arts as much as on the streets.
