Nadia Jelassi, artist.
Her installation entitled "He who hasn't..." at the Printemps des Arts fair in La Marsa (North Tunis) was vandalised by Salafists in June 2012. The artist now faces charges for speech deemed offensive to public morality and public order which carries up to five years in prison. Human Rights Watch has called on the Tunisian prosecutors to drop the charges. Nadia continues to make art. Showing her art in Tunisia has become difficult, however, as the gallery representing her is now afraid - it is not sure whether an exhibition planned for April 2013 is going to go ahead.
