Description

Surrealism vs Scribbles: The Hostile Narratives Around the Surrealist Movement in Egypt [AR]

Since their rising in 1930s - 40s, Surrealist artists in Egypt have faced hostility. Alaa Abdelhamid (Interdisciplinary Artist and Writer, Cairo) will explore the nationalist and commercially grounded representations of Surrealist artists in film, press, and government communication. A reflection of their position in Egyptian society - where stories and official narratives collided - Abdelhamid will also explore the echos of these attitudes towards contemporary artists in this context.


Surréalisme Ou Gribouillages ? Attitudes Hostiles Autour Du Mouvement Surréaliste En Égypte [AR]

Depuis leur émergence dans les années 1930-1940, les artistes surréalistes égyptiens ont fait face à des comportements hostiles. Alaa Abdelhamid (artiste et écrivain interdisciplinaire, Le Caire) se penche sur les représentations nationalistes et commerciales d’artistes surréalistes au cinéma, dans la presse et dans les communications gouvernementales. Dans ce contexte, Abdelhamid s’intéresse également aux échos de ces attitudes envers les artistes contemporains, reflets de leur statut au sein de la société égyptienne, où s’entrechoquent anecdotes et récits officiels.
