ABDELKE - A Donation to fight Death in Syria.

Emmanuel Daydé, Youssef Abdelké : A dona­tion to fight Death in Syria.

"By donating to the Museum of the Institut du monde arabe 23 works by Syrian painter Youssef Abdelké, dating from 1991 to 2017, Claude and France Lemand pre­sent a dra­matic and grip­ping pic­ture of Syria’s mar­tyrdom.

Engraver and painter, an advo­cate of freedom or death, he has always raised his art like a mirac­u­lous weapon against noth­ing­ness. Outraged by the injus­tice and by all the vio­la­tions done to human integrity, Abdelké uses his fear of death as a new means of sur­vival." (Emmanuel Daydé)
