He stated that the exhibition was first staged at the Aswan International Women's Film Festival in March 2023, and later in the cities of Luxor and Cairo, noting that the project will continue until December 2023.
Mr. Jukl also added that the exhibition presents the artistic output of students from the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art (University of West Bohemia), and the Faculty of Fine Arts (Helwan University).
