10 years INSYRIATED- Rosh Abdelfatah Quartair
For Hoogtij#64 Syrian artist Rosh Abdelfatah, from the Arab Film Festival, will produce a live VJ set at Quartair, from his compilation of films on the Syrian war.
10 years of INSYRIATED is a personal retrospective of the Syrian artist Rosh Abdelfatah, who has been active within the Syrian Revolution and subsequently involved in cultural projects in Northern Syria (Rojava). A work about the role and form of art within the revolution and about the people who risk their lives for freedom in Syria.
Since the peaceful uprising (revolution) in Syria started 10 years ago, more than 6.1 million people have been displaced in their own country. In addition, more than 5.5 million people have fled abroad, most of them to a country in the region. More than 400,000 people have lost their lives in the past ten years. The United Nations has previously called it the greatest humanitarian crisis since World War II.
