Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

Lessons from Mahalla, Paris: what future for Egypt’s fractured revolution?

When the Arab Spring erupted in 2011, the post-modern era of skepticism and pessimism in relation to positive, progressive political change was broken, albeit momentarily. The sight of thousands of people on the streets, demonstrating against corrupt politicians and their...

In an age where Satnav offers a guiding light through places unknown, and Google Street View reduces us all to that tiny orange man, it’s easy to assume that the thrills of individual exploration have been lost to a universalised...

Review: MM1: De-Construct / Re-Construct / We-Construct

MM1: De-Construct/Re-Construct/We-Construct is the first of two exhibitions by Israeli curators Sharon Toval and Nimrod Vardi which consider communication, the creative process and how where we come from defines how we relate to the world. In a spirit of experimentation, Toval and Vardi paired British artists Daniel Bourke, Cos Ahmet...

The Sudan Uprisings – clues for an anti-capitalist agenda

A spectre is haunting the world- the spectre of Austerity. Deficit-cutting measures now haunt populations across the world and it is the poorest and most vulnerable that are being hit the hardest. Guy Standing in his latest book has termed this class of people The Precariat, those in vulnerable and...
Review: Still Corners at Dalston Roof Park

Review: Still Corners at Dalston Roof Park

On Monday night, against a vertiginous and rain-soaked city-scape, London-based Still Corners played a show in support of their 2011 album, Creatures of the Hour. Signed to Subpop, their music is best described as dream-pop; though this is not to say their sound is not without depth. Jarring guitars, cinematic...
Review: Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present

Review: Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present

Marina Abramović’s art is undoubtedly compelling and innovative, yet it does not always touch or move me. However, this film, and its depiction of the artist, moved me utterly. The HBO production, Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present centres on a retrospective of her work at the Museum of Modern...
Turkish cinema: another time, another world

Turkish cinema: another time, another world

The themes of Reha Erdem’s Kosmos will be much recognisable to devotees of the transcendentalist-spiritual sector of world cinema, yet it is perhaps more interesting for granting us another timely cinematic look at Turkey, for a film-clientele newly enamoured with the regional visions of Nuri Bilge Ceylan. From a non-native...

Cosmopolis: Cronenberg's newest malaise

Cosmopolis: Cronenberg’s newest malaise

Don DeLillo, one of the greatest living authors writing in the English language, working with David Cronenberg, erstwhile purveyor of body horror and a consistently challenging narrative filmmaker, is a collaboration that seemed stylistically destined to be combined. Yet it is more than this missed potential that makes this newly...
The Spear: Zuma unwrapped

The Spear: Zuma unwrapped

The arts and the historical conditions of their creation are undoubtedly interdependent and not always easily demarcated, with each consistently blurring into the other. As critics such as Frederic Jameson have argued, the stylistic movement over time from realism to modernism and into post-modernism, has in many ways matched capitalism’s...

The Turin Horse
