Introduction

During the Tunisian Revolution of Dignity of January 2011, many cars of local car dealers who were connected and associated with the ex-President's family clan were publicly demolished and some burned. Later, many of these wrecks were brought to a field in Carthage-Byrsa. Last Sunday, 27th February, art and architecture students, joined by local residents, painted on the remains of these cars to express their joy about the revolution and hope for the future.
