Project description

The intervention of the military in 2013 has been a serious backlash for visual artists from Egypt addressing the topic of revolution in their work. This project aims to study the paths of artists who left Egypt after 2013 for Europe, mapping networks on which they rely and inquiring the dilemmas of
their new position after arrival.
