I HAVE A DREAM

The words pronounced by Martin Luther King during his speech in Washington in 1963 grew to become synonymous with the pursuit of changes – a motto that galvanised the activists of the revolt of May ’68, as well as provided hope for the effect of the activities of the citizens, who “demanded the impossible”.
The exhibition I HAVE A DREAM comes into being at a unique time – when for over a year now the societies of nearly the entire globe have been expressing their protest against the political, social, moral situation and the economic solutions in force that humiliate them. We ourselves often participate in demonstrations and protests, sensing how much started to depend on us, on our participation, voice, action.
