Cairo New Testimonies

The exhibition “Cairo. New Testimonies of an Ongoing Revolution” [on display from 16 August] at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, revolves around the political and social awakening of a generation which became visible to the world public when the mass protests began on Tahrir Square in Cairo on 25 January 2011 and has remained a major force in Egyptian society to this day. The story is told above all by Egyptian artists and photographers, activists and curators who lend the events expression from their own perspectives. The individual sections of the show were curated by well-known figures of the Cairo art world, among them the artists Lara Baladi and Heba Farid, the photographers Thomas Hartwell and Tarek Hefny, artist-activist Jasmina Metwaly, film maker Philip Rizk, and the journalists Rowan El Shimi and Alex Nunns.
