Human Rights Watch is publishing its first art book, “War/Identities – When Words Aren’t Enough,” to raise awareness about human rights issues in Lebanon and encourage public engagement. The book will be introduced at a public event on December 8, 2016, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Dar El-Nimer for Arts & Culture.
The book includes contributions from 41 local artists whose work reflects on human rights issues in Lebanon, including women’s rights, migrant domestic worker rights, torture, disappearances, refugees, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights. It includes works by inspiring Lebanese and local Palestinian artists, including Paul Guiragossian, Fadi Barrage, AbdulRahman Katanani, and Huguette Caland. Read More via HRW.
