Living Aleppo is an interactive outdoor exhibition to convey to the public the consequences of years of war in Syria, focusing on the destruction in Aleppo. The exhibition revolves around the stories of several individuals who stayed behind during the bombings in Aleppo and survived the violence.
The exhibition Living Aleppo raises questions such as: how can Aleppo become a city again? The city needs to be rebuilt. Buildings, as well as trust. Trust between the people needs to be restored. These people have been shooting at each other for years and will have to learn to coexist again.
The art installation Living Aleppo recalls Madurodam, but here, instead of nice, picturesque little Dutch houses, we see a city in ruins, where hospitals, schools and homes have been bombed, and the population is struggling to survive.
Living Aleppo was dissempled in the beginning of 2020 but lives on as an interactive website.
