Art exhibition: ‘Vivre sous contrainte / Living under duress’

As part of the cultural programme of the Connecting in Times of Duress Conference, the ‘Living Under Duress’ exhibition (curated by artist Salma Khalil and researcher Catherina Wilson) is the result of a collaboration between researchers at the Leiden University and different artists from Central Africa.
