Year: 2018
Status: Open

The project proposes different forms of public cultural engagements with two key configurations from which the possibility of another society was imagined in Egypt in the 1960s: the construction of the Aswan High Dam and the Office for African Liberation Movements in Cairo. Taking libraries and personal collections as a point of departure, the project intends to inquire what we can learn from those histories today.

Category: Training and Regional Events
Year: 2015
Status: Open

Throughout the year leading up to the next issue of the PhotoCairo festival in depth research and a series of workshops will explore the theme of "visibility" and develop diverse contributions to the festival. Through the series of multi-part workshops the festival opens up to a wider circle of young artists, image makers and related practitioners and  involves them in developing contributions to the festival. Furthermore the preliminary phase aims to provide a more sustainable circulation of relevant content in preparation and during the festival and to make research material including a series of video conversations on the topic accessible to a wider public through a website as well as in the library section of the actual festival.

PhotoCairo 5

Year: 2012
Status: Open

The fifth edition of an international, multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival held in Cairo once every 2 years. Through an exhibition of existing and newly commissioned works, a two-day symposium and a publication, this edition of PhotoCairo addresses art as a space of freedom by responding to the post-2011 emerging cultural politics, positioning artists between paradoxically confining roles: either as mouthpieces of the presumed ideals of the 2011 revolutionary events; or under the censorious gaze of culturally conservative forces
