Summary
"Traces of Survival communicates to the world visually the tragedies that have befallen entire communities in Iraq due to the ISIS onslaught that has left over 1.8 million people internally displaced. The drawings in this book were created by the refugees in three camps in northern Iraq. Representatives from the Ruya Foundation took simple art materials to the camps--sketch books, pencils, felt tip pens, pastels, erasers and sharpeners--and invited people to tell the world about their feelings and experiences through their drawings and words ... The project was devised as an exhibition to accompany the Iraq Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2015, commissioned by the Ruya Foundation. All 350 drawings are included in the book and Ai Weiwei's selection of 80 is prominently presented. Traces of Survival will be launched at the Venice Biennale in May 2015 with proceeds from sales going to the artists"-- Condensed from OCLC.
