I Know Why The Rebel Sings

I Know Why The Rebel Sings
Fifteen photographs have been removed from Newsha Tavakolian's exhibition I Know Why The Rebel Sings in Singapore. The images were part of a portfolio of portraits of female soldiers from the Kurdish group YPJ, fighting against Islamic State.

The photographs had been published in Time magazine on 20th April 2015 and distributed in Singapore, though they were censored from the exhibition by the Media Development Authority. The exhibition opened on 22nd June, at TheatreWorks, and will close on 9th July.
