Die Strategie der kritischen Unterwanderung vorgefasster Kategorien ist eine wirkmächtige subversive künstlerische Praktik, der innerhalb des postkolonialen Kunstdiskurses eine besonders wichtige Bedeutung zukommt. Wie Judith Bihr anhand zeitgenössischer Kunst aus Ägypten darlegt, begegnen viele Künstler_innen der Problematik der eigenen Verortung, indem sie stereotype Vorstellungen scheinbar bedienen, um diese zugleich künstlerisch zu unterminieren. Am Beispiel der Verwendung ornamentaler Strukturen wird gezeigt, wie sich die Arbeiten einer eindeutigen Zuschreibung entziehen und so gerade ihre eigene Ambivalenz zum Thema machen. Damit liefern sie zugleich einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Debatte um eine global formulierte Kunstgeschichte.**

Inszenierung und Effekte

Die Magie der Szenografie

Licht-Effekte, Sound- und Klang-Effekte, digitale Effekte, Raum- und Interaktions-Effekte - tricktechnischer Zauber, aber auch unableitbare Magie gehören zum strategischen Inventar der Szenografen. Stets verbergen oder präsentieren Effekte sich als Differenzen im Indifferenten. Als Augenblicke des Unerwarteten machen sie Welt, Raum oder Atmosphären allererst wahrnehmbar. Sie dienen als Orientierungsmarken im Orientierungslosen und werden als Kompetenzen der Rhythmisierung, Manipulation und Subversion von Erwartungen, Ereignissen und Emotionen eingesetzt. Komplexe Konzepte der Beeinflussung von Affekten, Wahrnehmungen und Urteilen im Spannungsfeld zwischen rationaler Erklärung (making of) und sozialer Magie (Emotionalisierung) werden in diesem Band unter design-, kunst- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Gesichtspunkten dargestellt. Die Beiträge präzisieren die Frage nach einer ökonomischen Effektsetzung und damit der (nachträglichen) Interpretations- und Ableitungsangebote von dramaturgischen Effekten sowohl im theoretischen Zusammenhang als auch im konkreten szenografischen Produkt.

Egypt - with this country we associate ideas of art with more than 4,000-year-long history: the beautiful Neferttiti, the treasures of Tutankhamun, the pyramids in the Valley of the Kings. Much of the intellectual structure of Europe has its roots in the large country on the Nile. What is lacking is only the present and thus contemporary art. This book shows 13 positions of artistic individuals who have found a very contemporary language who work in all media and act on an international level. Texts by scholars and artists document the intensive, often controversial discussion in an art scene that moves between the contrasting contexts of the Occident and the Orient.

In a collage of images the author attempts to convey the transformation of consumer culture and how it is related to the urban reshaping of the city of Cairo to meet with the demands of globalisation.
