Maintain: Collective exhibition

We know that there can be no healing alone, that it can only be achieved collectively, like justice, like freedom. Yet, the need to survive doesn’t always bring out the noblest version of ourselves, and we are not always ready to come together at the times when doing so is most urgently needed.

Artists | Ideas | Now - Egypt and the Climate Crisis

By Liverpool Arab Arts Festival

How can art and activism raise the profile of the climate emergency?

As global leaders arrive in Egypt for Cop27, Artists | Ideas | Now in an eight-part audio series, we hear from Egyptian artists and those with Egyptian heritage, who are using the arts to address the most pressing and complex conversations behind the crisis.
Produced by Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, in partnership with Artists on the Frontline, and supported by The Space and Arts Council England with funding from the National Lottery.

Through the time of learning and practicing, experimenting and intensely discovering; between ambitious attempts to meticulously research musicology identity, I have keenly enjoyed a creative passion for writing about sound art in my mother tongue, Arabic.

I am delighted to announce my first book.

(There are sounds of the moving images.)

This Arabic text is about the history of digital art, and the contemporary conceptualization practices and theories through the ear vision, the sound as a philosophy and artistic medium.

As I wrote on its first page, I dedicate this book to Ahmed Basiony, my teacher, brother, and my friend. Who taught me how to use my ear.

I extend my thanks and love to the artist, my friend Ahmed Mohsen Mansour, who supported me and encouraged me to continue this work. Not only, but I would like to thank Mr. Yousif Al-Harbi, Director of the Culture and Arts Association in Dammam.

The book is a production of Saudi-Arabia society for culture and arts.
