On 104.4FM this week we spoke to Tunisian artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke ahead of her participation in the JAOU Tunis symposium in Tunis May 28-30th 2015.
Kaabi-Linke has in the past won the Abraaj Capital Arts Prize in the UAE for a piece mapping the illegal sales mats of African migrants on the Rialto Bridge in Venice, and recently had a solo show at Laurie Shabibi gallery, Dubai: FAHRENHEIT311: Seven Legends of Machismo.
On today’s show we discuss the statistic put forward by Lina Lazaar, founder of JAOU Tunis, on a previous Six Pillars broadcast, that Tunisia has more young men joining the current wave of militants than any other country in the world. Through art, can young men rediscover their sense of self-determination, which Kaabi-Linke posits that they have lost, comparing them to workers in the corporate world also?
