JR's INSIDE/OUT in TunisiaStreet Art // Saturday, 26 Mar 2011
The amount of energy that JR has alone is inspirational. He just sees to be moving at a different pace at the moment, seizing the opportunity that the TED Award has afforded him and letting his unique interpretation of art and the world be seen as much as possible. We admire him for that. He has now taken his INSIDE/OUT Project to Tunisia, with the title Artocracy in Tunisia.
JR writes, "Six Tunisian photographers travelled the country to take pictures of 100 « normal » tunisians representing the Tunisian diversity: men and women, young and old, from North, South East and West, rich or poor, civil servants, business people, workers, farmers, unemployed, and much more… For a country which has only exposed in the streets the portraits of the ruler, this makes quite a difference.
