Between Art and Activism: Egyptian Women and the Revolution

28.07.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

After the revolution of 2011 in Egypt, many Egyptian feminist groups, movements, and NGOs consolidated their efforts in order to promote women’s rights. This paper sheds light on the role of Egyptian women artists, through analysing the cultural production of some of the activists who participated in the 2011 revolution; writers, musicians, visual artists…etc.

The paper examines their artistic production in light of a definition informed by the intersection of activist art and feminist art production.
