SUDAN, THE HISTORY OF AN UPRISING
29 June - 30 August
10H00 - 19H30
After three decades of religious and military dictatorship and years of civil war, on April 11, 2019 the Sudanese people toppled Omar al-Bashir, who had imposed an undivided reign on them since his coup d'état in 1989. The Sudanese uprising began in December 2018. Despite the risk of arrest and torture by the regime's political police, thousands of Sudanese took to the streets for five months. Driven by the desire to document resistance and repression, a new generation of photographers between 19 and 30 years old emerged. Posting their images on social media, they were both actors and observers of this historical moment. The show features pictures by eight photographers on this emerging scene. To bring these 57 days of peaceful occupation to life, the show also includes footage of the sit-in shot by filmmaker Hind Meddeb.
