LECTURE-PERFORMANCE: FADI ABDELNOUR
EDWARD W. SAID DAYS 2021
The contemporary aspiration for diversity in art and culture in Germany is often influenced by apparent or latent Eurocentrism and/or Orientalism. The presentation and consumption of art and culture from the Arab World regularly fall victim to such practices. Often it seems that there are unwritten rules regulating the supply and demand of “foreign” images and narratives on the culture and art markets. Fadi Abdelnour’s lecture-performance analyzes Eurocentric structures in the cultural sector as well as the resulting practices and habits of art consumption, which reinforce these structures in turn.
