»Cairo. Open City« examines the roles that images are playing in the ongoing Egyptian revolution, from the outbreak of the Arab Spring through the present. The catalog includes a variety of approaches to the time-based media of photography and video, from the works of photo journalists, to recordings by activists and »citizen journalists«, to documents collected by different artists. The different chapters will generate a dialogue between the images: Cover images from newspapers will stand alongside photo galleries from blogs, iconic pictures alongside unknown images of people on the streets, images of martyrs alongside long-term documentary projects. The catalog comes out on the occasion of the exhibition in the Museum for Photography Braunschweig and collects essays from young Cairo-based authors.
