IN THIS MOONLESS BLACK NIGHT: SYRIAN ART AFTER THE UPRISING
Khaled Barakeh is a Berlin-based conceptual artist and cultural activist. Driven by his observations of longstanding social injustice, Barakeh approaches art as a tool for societal change and as a vehicle to undermine stagnant power structures. In Exile, a reworked emergency exit lightbox, Barakeh plays with the familiarity of objects, signs that surround us, and how we perceive their presence.
