Don schreibt mir: „Der Berliner Verlag From Here To Fame macht gerade eine Indiegogo Kampagne für das Buchprojekt Walls of Freedom.

Walls of Freedom dokumentiert die Kunstwerke, die ägyptische Street Artists in den letzten drei Jahren auf ihren Straßen hinterlassen haben. In diesem Buch geht es aber nicht nur um Kunst, sondern auch um die ganze Geschichte der Revolution bis heute, die anhand der Graffitis erzählt wird. Wir arbeiten an diesem Projekt seit 1½ Jahren zusammen mit 50 Photographen, 30 Künstlern und 20 Autoren.“

‘Walls of Freedom’ is a powerful portrayal of the Egyptian Revolution, telling the story with striking images of art that turned Egypt’s walls into a visual testimony of bravery and resistance. It takes a closer look at the most influential artists who have made their iconic marks on the streets.

This survey of Egyptian street art is also enriched by images of the revolution taken by acclaimed photographers and activists. Spanning major Egyptian cities like Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor it is a day-to-day reflection of the volatile and fast-shifting political situation. With contributions by experts in many fields, ‘Walls of Freedom’ not only places the graffiti of the revolution in a broader context, it also examines the historical, socio-political and cultural backgrounds which have shaped the movement.
