CAMP / Center for Art on Migration Politics and refugee justice community center Trampoline House are very proud to invite the public to an artist talk and video screening with the internationally recognized Sudanese artist and political cartoonist Khalid Albaih, who also publishes works under the name "Khartoon" (a word play on Khartoum, Sudan's capital city).

Albaih began drawing and sharing his drawings on social media during the Arab Spring in 2010. The drawings went viral but also found their way from the Internet to city walls in Cairo and Beirut. The themes of his drawings include how the Western and Arab world interacts, politics, inequality, migration, and the role of social media.

Until October 2019, Albaih is in Denmark as a "free-city artist" through the free city program "International Cities of Refugee Network" (ICORN), which is an international network that provides protection to authors, writers, and artists whose freedom of speech is violated in their home countries.

One can experience Albaih's new installation "Africa Light" (2018) in CAMP's current exhibition "Decolonizing Appearance" until March 30.

The event is conducted in English!

All events in Trampoline House are for free, and everyone is welcome. However, we’d really appreciate it if you’d help us get an idea of how many people to expect by filling out this form: www.trampolinehouse.dk/sign-up-special-event

CAMP / Center for Migrationspolitisk Kunst og flygtningemedborgerhuset Trampolinhuset er meget stolte af at kunne invitere offentligheden til en ‘artist talk' og video screening med den internationalt anerkendte sudanesiske kunstner og politiske tegner Khalid Albaih, som også publicerer værker under navnet “Khartoon” (et ordspil med Khartoum, Sudans hovestad).

Albaih begyndte at tegne og dele sine tegninger på de sociale medier, da det Arabiske Forår startede i 2010. Tegningerne gik viralt, men fandt også vej fra Internettet til bymure i Cairo og Beirut. Temaerne for hans tegninger er bl.a., hvordan den vestlige og arabiske verden interagerer, politik, ulighed, migration og sociale mediers rolle.

Albaih er frem til oktober 2019 i Danmark som “fribykunstner” gennem fribyordningen ’International Cities of Refugee Network’ (ICORN), som er et internationalt netværk, der yder beskyttelse til forfattere, skribenter og tegnere, hvis ytringsfrihed krænkes i deres hjemlande.

Man kan opleve Albaihs nye installation "Africa Light" (2018) i CAMPs aktuelle udstilling "At dekolonisere fremtræden" frem til 30. marts.

Eventet foregår på engelsk!

Alle events i Trampolinhuset er gratis, og alle er velkomne. Men vi ville blive meget glade, hvis du ville hjælpe os med at få et overblik over, hvor mange der kommer ved at udfylde dette skema: www.trampolinehouse.dk/sign-up-special-event
