Panel: Cairo: The City, the Images, the Archives

Archives are the memory of culture. As part of the Living Archive project this panel discusses the special situation of moving image archives in Cairo. It will focus on accessibility under dictatorship as well as on post-revolution conditions, the relation of analogue and digital, legal and illegal archives and their role in filmic, curatorial and political praxis.

With Khalid Abdalla (actor, producer, co-founder of Zero Productions and the alternative media collective Mosireen), Hala Galal (filmmaker, producer, director of SEMAT production & distribution), Maha Maamoun (artist, curator and co-founder of Contemporary Image Collective), Sarah Rifky (curator Townhouse Gallery, founder of Cairo International Resource Center for Art, documenta 13 agent).
