Brains & style! What more could you ask for? My good friend Linda makes it look so easy. Just as effortless with her fashion, she applies the same techniques to her studies. Currently blasting through law school!

"Of Course Mona, Harara, Blue Bra Lady, Emad" 
Screenprints by Ganzeer

:

Four screenprints I designed in Cairo sometime in 2013, screenprinted by Kevin Caplicki in Brooklyn at Bushwick Print Lab.

Top image - from left to right:

Title: Of Course, Mona
Edition: 30 
Dimensions: 19x25 Inches
Media: screenprint on paper
Description: “Of course the army has protected the revolution” is juxtaposed against an image of Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian-American journalist, who was sexually assaulted and had both her arms broken by Egyptian Riot police during a protest against military rule in November 2011.

Title: Of Course, Harara
Edition: 30 
Dimensions: 19x25 Inches
Media: screenprint on paper
Description: “Of course the army has protected the revolution,” a sentence much propagated by the Egyptian regime since the fall of Mubarak is juxtaposed against a portrait of Ahmed Harara, an Egyptian protestor who lost an eye to a bullet on January 28th, 2011, and the other eye during anti-military protests-become-clashes near the Ministry of Interiors on November 19, 2011, a day known as the Battle of the Eyes of Freedom where many protestors lost their eyes to a police sniper.

Title: Of Course, Blue Bra Lady
Edition: 30 (depicted above is a version hand-colored with blue and pink highlights)
Dimensions: 19x25 Inches
Media: screenprint on paper
Description: The text reads “Of course the army has protected the revolution.” This sentence, regularly propagated by the Egyptian regime since the spark of the Egyptian revolution is juxtaposed against the backdrop of one protestor who’s gotten a taste of that protection first hand. Known as “The Blue Bra Girl,” this woman was unclothed, and severely kicked and beaten by several Military Police officers during a protest on December 17th, 2011 calling on the illegitimacy of Egyptian Parliament.

Title: Of Course, Emad
Edition: 30 
Dimensions: 19x25 Inches
Media: screenprint on paper
Description: Sheikh Emad Effat, an Al-Azhar University Senior, was shot dead during a massive anti-parliament/anti-military protest on December 17, 2011. This, by the way, at a time when the Muslim Brotherhood was supportive of the military and had managed to dominate parliament. Sheikh Emad’s portrait is juxtaposed against a sentence commonly propagated by the regime in Egypt: “Of course the army protected the revolution.”

“If the Qur’an tells us that God’s rule brooks no other rulers or intermediaries, then we should also not read the Qur’an as setting up men as intermediaries between God and women, or as rulers over women.
[…]
Historically, of course, only male scholars and socially sanctioned interpretive communities have done so. However, the text itself calls on each believer to use their own intellect and reasoning, aql and ilm, to decipher its ayat. Significantly, in the Qur’an, aq and ilm are not a function of scholarship or even of literacy since the Qur’an says it came also for the unlettered Bedouin in the desert. As such, I believe that the authority to interpret the Qur’an derives from the Qur’an itself, not from public sanction or existing structures of interpretive authority; in fact the structure of Muslim authority and public reason have effectively closed off the Qur’an to fully half the ummah, the women.” Un-reading Patriarchal Interpretations of the Qur’an: Beyond the binaries of tradition and modernity, Asma Barlas (via verkur)
