DON’T SAY IT. SPRAY IT. – The fight of critical artists for communication.

A photographic journey of designer Judika Zerrer through the streets of Kairo during the Arabic Spring.
If art is the daughter of liberty, then what does streetart mean in a country like egypt, where a dissident thought can be life-threatening? Since the Arabic Spring the walls in the cities of egypt noticeably become wall newspapers of the revolution. On site collected photographies, facts and impressions tell the historical origin of the revolutional graffiti. During interviews acitivists and artists get a chance to speak, who (with the intention to enlighten the people) temporarily circumvent the media-censorship; following the principle: Don’t say it. Spray it.
