Saving the Revolution On Line

Chronicle by Isabelle Rodriguez

It is from Beirut, where she took refuge with her family, that the Syrian graphic artist Sana Yazini, born in 1970 and having graduated from the Fine Arts School of Damask, started in May 2013 the creation of the platform The Creative Memory of The Syrian Revolution. A trilingual site – French, English and Arabic – not to tell about the events of the Revolution per se, but to report on the intellectual forms of expression being born. “It is about writing, recording, documenting, gathering the stories of the Syrian people, thanks to which it was able to take control of the meaning of its social, political and cultural existence.”
