Marie Lamensch: Has art always been a way for Sudanese artists to express their frustration with the government, or is this a rather recent trend? Do you feel like you have more freedom to be outspoken now? Assil Diab: The artistic expression that has emerged since the protests started in December 2018 is the most dramatic and expressive yet, especially because we now have a social media savvy generation. A lot of artwork was digital as much of it was graffiti on the walls of the sit-in held at the military headquarters. Before 2013, the graffiti scene was almost non-existent, but it has now become the main form of creative expression used by the revolutionaries.
