In March 2011, JR made the commitment to make possible, by accompanying them, the hatching of multiple artistic projects bearing the label Inside Out by providing techniques and materials necessary to carry out projects “à la JR”. Artocracy in Tunisia is the first project in this series. At the initiative of Slim Zeghal and Marco Berrebi, six Tunisian photographers – Sophia Baraket, Rania Dourai, Wissal Dargueche, Aziz Tnani, Hichem Driss and Hela Ammar – therefore traveled the country to photograph 100 people representing the diversity of the population before to display these portraits in Tunisian streets. For a country that, for more than 50 years, had only publicly exposed the presidential image, it makes a difference! For the first major public exhibition in an emerging Arab democracy, the collage was bound to hold surprises and the exercise was not always easy. But he carries the hope that Tunisia will become a country that moves artistically like Spain after Franco, or Berlin after the fall of the wall.
