Popular Narratives (working title)

Contemporary Image Collective  |  Training and Regional Events  |  2018  |  Egypt
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.
