Nuart Plus 2017 – From Cairo: I Know Why the Caged Birds Sing
Artist presentation by Bahia Shehab (EG)
Six years since the Egyptian uprising the voices that chanted in Tahrir Square have been silenced. The city and its walls do not tolerate anything but the white wash that has covered all the stories. Since 2014, Bahia Shehab has been painting poetry on different walls in different cities around the world. Even if this act is meaningless now, it is a way to leave songs on walls so that maybe change will come one day.
