To Redeyef Book - Siwa

The Siwa platform was developed as a nomadic program for exchange between artists and thinkers from Tunis, Baghdad and Paris. It has taken root in the mountainous region around Gafsa in Tunisia. There, in the middle of a phosphate basin, lies Redeyef, one of the most neglected cities in the country. The residents are mostly phosphate miners and unemployed youth, both affiliated with traditional trade unions. The precarious living conditions contributed to the fact that an insurgent spirit grew here: Its hour came in 2008 and anticipated the international uprisings of 2011.

Lumbung Kios are exhibiting in Economics the Blockbuster as part of Manchester International Festival. They are a global network of artists forging a self-driven, sustainable economic model for selling their work, and provide merchandise with a purpose.
