»This edited volume provides a unique look at the Egyptian revolution by granting agency to activists and describing how art continually serves as a language of contestation.«
Anwar Mhajne, H-Net-Reviews, 3 (2016)
»Sehr zu empfehlen.«
Sebastian Gerth, MEDIENwissenschaft, 2 (2015)
»[The book] provides an innovative and nuanced account of the significance of images during this exceptional period.
Rather than a monument to a past moment, [the book] should be seen as an effort to sustain this revolutionary opening in its various iterations, thus harnessing the generativity of these exceptional events.«
Mark R. Westmoreland, Journal of the Society for Contemporary Thought and the Islamicate World, 4 (2015)
»Der reichhaltige und vielgestaltige Band bietet einen vorzüglichen Einstieg in die vielfältigen Veränderungen Ägyptens in den letzten Jahren, die hinter allen eventuell stattfindenden politischen Entwicklungen nicht verschwinden werden.«
Rüdiger Lohlker, Wiener Zeitschrift zur Kunde des Morgenlandes, 104 (2014)
»Mikala Hyldig Dal [kompiliert] anhand zahlreicher Gastbeiträge eine Fülle an Positionen und Blickwinkeln auf die Wechselbeziehungen von Politik und Ästhetik seit dem Beginn der ägyptischen Revolution. Und schafft damit einen bereichernden Blick auf die Ikonografie des Umbruchs.«

Erratum

Photograph on top page 268 should have been inserted in page 251 (Photograph by Mona Abaza) to accompany the text describing the Mohammed Mahmud incidents of 23th of November 2012. This article should be read as part of a series of photo reportages on Mohammed Mahmud Street as a memorial and performative dramaturgical space. See Mona Abaza, "An Emerging Memorial Space? In Praise of Mohammed Mahmud Street", in Jadaliyya, 10 March 2012 (http://www.jadaliyya.com/pages/index/4625/an-emerging-memorial-space-in-praise-of-mohammed-m) and "The Dramaturgy of a Street Corner", 25 January 2013 (http://www.jadaliyya.com/pages/index/9724/the-dramaturgy-of-a-street-corner).
