Artocracy is an international art project led by the French artist JR and his collaborators.
Previously JR has worked in Brazil in the favelas and on the Wall between Palestine and Israel. His next stop is said to be Egypt.
In Tunisia he worked with six local photographers. The aim is to provoke discussion with huge portraits of ordinary people in the ruins of government buildings destroyed in the revolution. Art is used to show how the world has been turned upside down or inside out, taking it out of the studio and onto the streets and areas of social conflict.
