”The hidden beauty of the desert” – photography exhibition of the Libyan Tuareg

Started 06.07.2016

Ended 21.08.2016

The deset is alive and breathing, and hides in it an unique culture. The photography exhibition of Hussein Suleiman offers an unforeseen opportunity to see the life of the Tuareg from the inside, instead of viewing it throught the Western lens. The photos, that reflect the strong identity and the beauty of the Tuareg culture, reveal the everyday life and the festivities in the desert

“Tihoussay n tenere ta yfart – The hidden beauty of the desert” photography exhibition takes over the Cultural Center Caisa in October, bringing with it the spirit of the desert. For the first time ever a Tuareg photographer’s work is shown in Finland. Hussein Suleiman is a young, promising photographer from the Libyan desert and his photos will now have their premiere in Europe. He arrives for the exhibition from Libya, from a small town in the desert called Ghat.

With this exhibition we aim also to bring forth the current situation of the Amazigh in Libya, by giving a voice to a local artist. Libya’s Tuareg live in the southern parts of the country and their living conditions are extremely harsh, both climatically and politically.

Attached to the exhibition we will organize three events. During these events there will be a chance to participate in a discussion about the special status of the Tuareg women in their society, a Tifinagh workshop and a Tuareg evening “Sahara style”, including music and some desert tea. More details of the programs will be found from our website.

We are hoping to collect 3000 € which will cover the costs of the exhibition production, printing of the year 2017 calendar and good quality special program with musicians. With the minimum amount of 1000 € we are able to put the exhibition together, print a small amount of calendars and produce a program without musicians.

The exhibition is brought to Finland by Afous-Afous ry and its duration is from Fri 7.10.2016 klo 09.00 to Thu 27.10.2016 klo 18.00.

”The hidden beauty of the desert” – photography exhibition of the Libyan Tuareg

The association Afous-Afous ry works with the Tuareg of the Sahara and Sahel, introducing the culture, history and way of life and we aim to be an informative channel in Finland on the current situation of the Tuareg. The Tuareg belong to the North African indigenous population, Amazigh (Berbers), originally leading a nomadic lifestyle stretching across many state borders. Majority of the Tuareg live in Niger, Mali and Algeria, smaller groups also in Libya, Mauritania and Burkina Faso. We work in cooperation with various organizations in Finland and abroad and we are a member of the Anna Lindh Foundation Network. Afous-Afous operates as an informative channel and culture producer, lecturing and organizing evets and we work on various projects in Europe as well as in the Tuareg areas.
