Nefertiti’s Daughters is a story of women, art, and revolution. Told by prominent Egyptian artists, this documentary witnesses the critical role revolutionary street art played during the Egyptian uprisings. Focused on the role of women artists in the struggle for social and political change, it spotlights how the iconic graffiti of Queen Nefertiti placed her on the front lines in the ongoing fight for women’s rights and freedom in Egypt today.
Everybody attending the film screening is welcome to meet Bahia Shehab, Mark Nickolas, and other participants at a reception among the video installations on the gallery of the second-floor lobby, celebrating the publication of At the Corner of a Dream: A Journey of Revolution and Resistance, which shows Shehab’s street art based on poetry by the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish.
Reception sponsored by Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations.
