From October 5th to November 1st

From Chile to Hong Kong via Guinea… the decade which began in 2010, marked by the Arab Spring movements, ended with a new wave of protest movements throughout the world. AFP looks back to the Arab world, from Sudan and Algeria where popular movements have led to the removal of heads of state, to Iraq and Lebanon, shaken by unprecedented dissent. The exhibition then takes us to Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile in Latin America. And of course to Hong Kong, where for seven months immense and sometimes violent demonstrations convulsed the semi-autonomous territory, leaving the city profoundly divided. And finally, the shock wave generated by the death of African-American George Floyd on May 25th has led to multiple demonstrations across the United States and throughout the world in protest against racism and police brutality.
