Four artists, six fairy tales, dozens of illustration - an European-Arabic book project full of fascinating imagery and story-telling

‘Backpacking Tales’ is a collection of inspiring and unknown Arabic fairy tales in a German-Arabic illustrated publication with the intention to convey the imagery of Arabic art and culture in light of the power of fairy tales to create cross-border imagination. The artistic-pedagogical workshops stage four illustrators that exchange their work and views in an artistic, aesthetic and discursive way on issues as tradition and modernity and the political and social dimension of fairy tales.
