The show

The Municipality of Brescia and the Brescia Musei Foundation, in collaboration with the Genesi Association and the Festival of Peace, announce the collective exhibition Until we are free curated by Ilaria Bernardi, which will be held in the rooms of the Museum from November 11th of Santa Giulia, in Brescia: an exhibition dedicated to the dramatically current theme of the condition of women in the world, with a particular focus on Iran.

Until we are free uses the feminine form of the title of the book Until we are free. IRAN my fight for human rights by Shirin Ebadi, Iranian lawyer and pacifist exiled since 2009, first Muslim woman Nobel Peace Prize winner (2003) for her efforts for democracy and human rights, in particular of women, children and of refugees. The announcement of the exhibition follows a few days after the announcement of the 2023 Nobel Peace Prize, which next December will be awarded to Narges Mohammadi – Iranian activist, vice-president of the Center for the Defense of Human Rights, imprisoned by the Iranian authorities in May 2016 and still in prison – “for her fight against the oppression of women in Iran and to promote human rights and freedom for all”.

The exhibition Until we are free continues and expands a line of research and in-depth analysis promoted since 2019 by the Brescia Musei Foundation, which has chosen to investigate geo-political contexts of pressing relevance through the perspective and production of contemporary artists. Previous chapters of this trend were the exhibitions dedicated to the relationship between art and rights which featured the Turkish artist and activist Zehra Doğan (We will also have better days. Works from Turkish prisons, 2019), the Chinese artist and activist Badiucao ( China (not) is near, 2021) and the Russian artist and activist Victoria Lomasko (The Last Soviet Artist, 2022).
