Kurdish artist Zehra Doğan to hold exhibition in Brescia

Brescia (Italy) will host the third Edition of the Festival of Peace from Friday 15 to Saturday 30 November. 

The festival will host important names who, at international level, have been exposed for defending human rights and harmony among peoples. This year marks the thirty years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, an epochal event in contemporary European and world history.

This is why the organisers wanted the new edition of the Festival to become an opportunity to develop a reflection on Europe and today’s world.

The festival enjoys the high patronage of the European Parliament and the President of the European Parliament David Maria Sassoli will join the inauguration on Friday 15 November.

The central theme of the event will be a reflection on today’s Europe and on the “new walls”, tangible and intangible, which threaten peaceful coexistence and relations between human beings.

The program offers events, shows, meetings and exhibitions. Kurdish artist and journalist Zehra Doğan will be exhibiting her work. “We will have better days too” is the name of the exhibition by  Zehra Doğan which will be inaugurated on Friday 15. The Kurdish artist was imprisoned for 33 months by the Turkish regime, and will meet the audience on 23 November.

The 20 of November will focus on the theme of femicide. While another important event will be the presentation of Behrouz Boochani’s book “No friend but the mountains” on 28 November. Iranian Kurdish journalist Boochani will be talking with the audience via Skype from the island of Manus, Australia, where he has been detained for five years.
