”Art is like a lucky bag, whose silver paper and artificial flowers hide a bomb that explodes in the hand of the public” is a statement by the artist Eric De Nemes, who is represented in the exhibition.
Art et Liberté: Rupture, War and Surrealism in Egypt (1938–1948) is the first comprehensive museum exhibition about Art et Liberté, a surrealist collective of artists and writers working in Cairo. At the dawn of the Second World War and during Egypt’s colonial rule by the British Empire, Art et Liberté was globally engaged in resistance against fascism, nationalism and colonialism.
