This paraphrase from the speech delivered by the Algerian born French author Albert Camus on December 10, 1957 as he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature, is a reaction of his engaged life and struggles.
He says that Art is not in his eyes a solitary celebration. It is a way to move the greatest number of people by offering them a privileged image of common sufferings and joys. Therefore, it forces the artist not to isolate, but to be the subject to the most humble and universal truth.
It is in this momentum of commitment, Amina Zoubir inscribes the luminous thoughts of Albert Camus in Led Letters writing “”Je n’ai jamais pu renoncer à la lumière – Jag kunde aldrig ge upp ljuset”” shown through the building windows at Kulturhuset.
