Satirical graphic designer El Moustach, as well as photographers Lola Khalfa and Oualid Khelifi, will exhibit their work as part MAWAEF festival whose pilot edition focuses on Africa's largest country - Algeria.
Through photography and design, this exposition aims to engage the Algerian diaspora in the UK, as well London's diverse audiences, to explore alternative narratives of Algeria's history and identity.
