In Kiev, Pavel, 25, a masseur, who took part in Thursday’s battle equipped with body armour, balaclava, sledgehammer, walkie-talkie, flares, and a knife, said: “We live for today. We have no idea what will happen tomorrow. We need a better life for Ukraine. For our children. This is just not normal.”

Anti-Morsi protesters chant slogans during a mass protest to support the army in Tahrir square in Cairo. Many of those Egyptians opposed to the ousted president say their admiration for the army has never wavered, and that any anger was always directed at the generals in charge. In the turbulent world of Egyptian politics since Hosni Mubarak, a former air force marshal, was toppled, the military is seen as an institution that offers stability Photograph: Mohamed Abd El Ghany/Reuters
Curating Syria’s revolutionary art
The revolution established a space for ingenuity that has astounded us, the Syrians, before even making its mark on the rest of the world, and we wonder, where had all this talent in satire, art, and innovation been?
The outburst of the uprising against oppression and tyranny brought on a surge of these remarkable, latent energies, the spontaneous and the organized, in a way never before seen in all of Syria’s years marked by repression and injustice. History relays similar experiences. This project aims to archive all the intellectual and artistic expressions in the age of revolution; it is writing, recording, and collecting stories of the Syrian people, and those experiences through which they have regained meaning of their social, political and cultural lives.
