    (ANSAmed) - TUNIS, JANUARY 10 - An exhibit opening on January 14 at Tunis' Bardo Museum has the objective of showcasing documents on the 2011 Tunisian revolution to preserve the memory of days that changed the history of the country, leading to the so-called Arab Spring.

    ''Before the Fourteenth: Tunisian Instant'' at the Bardo Museum will be inaugurated on January 14, the eighth anniversary of the ouster of former president Ben Ali.

    The exhibit, organized by the Tunisian ministry for cultural affairs and civil society associations, gathers in an original and interactive way archive documents, texts, videos and photographs on the so-called Jazmine revolution and will include artistic and cultural activities until March 31, the closing day of the show.

    The exhibit is organized around 12 key moments since the country's independence in 1956 until the 29 days between December 17, 2010 and January 14, 2011 - at the center of the revolution, with videos, blogs, Facebook posts and recordings on important events.

    The show has three main chapters: the first, ''Fire under Ashes'', focuses on events between 1956 and 2011 with the crackdown on protests at the heart of the narration. The second, ''the 29 Days of the Revolution'', sheds light on key moments of the uprising, and the third ,''Days After'', reports the events after January 14 until the start of the transition process in May 2011. A 200-page book in Arabic, French and English will be published as part of the show and will include witness reports and private archives provided by citizens. (ANSAmed)
