Once upon a time... the Arab revolutions

Il était une fois... les révolutions arabes

"Revolution is at the very heart of the history and imagination of the Arab world, as a component of thought and a vector for action. It has been built on a relationship with the other, the outside world, a relationship of borrowing, of fascination at times, and also of rejection. By virtue of its location, its history and its position as a cultural crossroads, the Arab world has been a privileged place for the development of revolutionary thought and the effervescence of anti-establishment ideas. It is hardly surprising that, in a context of globalisation, it has become a privileged space for revolutionary production, and that the "Arab Spring" has thus very quickly gained the status of a laboratory of ideas and forms of renewed mobilisation".

On this tenth anniversary, a collective of authors, artists and researchers is looking back at the sequence of Arab uprisings and questioning the revolutionary theme in the Arab world and "its words".
