The exhibition takes us on a journey into and within today’s Cairo as seen through
the works of the nine participating artists. The artists either come from Egypt or
have recently completed residencies in the country. In their works they refl ect
a certain contemporary and existential urban condition connected to the city
of Cairo, its suggestive power and collective imaginary, its appearance and its
unconscious, and the histories and dreams of its inhabitants. Imagination, wild
associations, non-linear narratives and an adventurous mix of fact and fi ction are
distinctive features of the approach of artists.
