Organizer & Curator: Yazdan Saadi

Nelson Mandela is undoubtedly the most prominent figure in the present era whose inexhaustible efforts have contributed to enrichment of world culture. Constant struggle and imprisonment, which have made Mandela a distinguished character in contemporary history, constitute his whole life. The very fact that the US president is a black has its roots in Mandela's struggles. With regard to racism and human rights, among other issues, Nelson Mandela is the world Liberty Pigeon.
If Picasso lived in our era and intended to draw liberty pigeon, he would clearly have doubt over its color. Therefore, it is all on our shoulders to illustrate Mandela's character and his struggles through posters in order for the world to never forget the father of peace among races. Mandela will last in the mind of the world forever.
