This Exegesis outlines how the multimedia exhibition, Voices, will represent the physical constraints and psychological realities in Iraq, under which journalists and civil-society organizations work. The multimedia exhibition on freedom of expression (FOE) in Iraq is contextualized in this Exegesis. Both this Exegesis and the exhibition itself demonstrate that the Iraqi struggle for FOE remains slow and fraught with difficulties. The exhibition and Exegesis aim to show the ‘real life’ challenges that media workers experience in post-conflict Iraq, set against the contextual backdrop of the “Arab Spring” uprisings in 2011.
