Criticism In Crisis

Townhouse  |  Research/Training/Regional Events  |  2016  |  Egypt
Producer: William Wells
This project intends to focus primarily on art writing and criticism as its scope of investigation and wishes to explore the value and practices of criticism in the societal context of perpetual states of emergency. It asks questions such as: what is the role of critique? How does critique and social crisis speak to one another? And how does its value change with consistent instability? The project will present a theory/practice based educational program that aims to discuss and practice critical writing in the current cultural and political context that Egypt offers.
