Medrar Studio


Medrar For Contemporary Art

15 April 2021 - 15 June 2021

For video art and experimental film 

More than ever, we are faced with the question of the image. What are these images that we produce, that we invoke, that we watch, and that are watching us, monitoring us? We are at once the creators, the producers, the actors, the extras, the witnesses and the audience of this spectacle. What is, then, this movement of the images that never ceases to haunt the world that is more and more threatening as much then threatened?

How can we still see, hear, in spite of everything? 
The pulse, the waves, are there, they have not yet abandoned us.

The workshop invited 6 Cairo based artists to develop their proposed concepts and  produce an experimental film with the support of Medrar.

Guest speakers:  Maha Maamoun, Youssra El Hawary

Executive Producer: Bassem El Qassabi

Workshop Manager: Mena El Shazly
