Don't Stop Drawing - Visual diaries of solidarity with Gaza


Tuesday, 19th March 2024 | 14:00-18:00, in the presence of the artist Mazen Kerbaj


The exhibition Don't Stop Drawing - Visual diaries of solidarity with Gaza is a linear timeline-based exhibition of works by the two Lebanese artists and longtime friends: Mazen Kerbaj, living in Berlin, and Jana Traboulsi, living in Beirut. As a response to the ongoing devastating war on Gaza, the two artists started drawing and posting on their Instagram pages to expose Israel's injustice towards Palestinians through bold and anchoring imagery. 

The works have been widely shared on social media, allowing thousands of people worldwide to express their own solidarity and to identify with the artists’ feelings and positions. These drawings are the artists' way of demanding equality, peace and justice for Palestine and to counter their helplessness towards the inhumanity that this genocide has exposed.


Curated by Mona El Hallak and Mayssa Jallad, the exhibition is part of the Institute for Global Prosperity's Lebanon Week, running from March 19th to 22nd and entitled: “The Politics of Decolonial Investigations and the Ethics of Solidarity”.
