Struggles often meet and overlap, like those of the Kurds and the French “yellow vests”. The same struggle for freedom and social equality meets the identical repression. Drawing artist Mamoste Dîn introduces to us the self-managed camp of Kurdish refugees in Lavrio, Greece. In a pendular motion between Greece and France and between individual experiences and political fights of Kurdish activists, we follow the young Judith who came to document the daily life of the camp. We will get to know and deeply appreciate its dwellers.
Mamoste Dîn, the author, was in intern at Drawing the Times and Het Huis van Betekenis. In 2019 she graduated at Ecole Estienne in Paris. This year she worked on a book that is now published on Drawing the Times. You can read the eighth chapter here, we will publish a chapter every week.
