Creative reckonings : the politics of art and culture in contemporary Egypt by Jessica Winegar ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Egyptian art world is the oldest and largest in the Arab Middle East. Its artists must reckon with the histories of ancient Egypt, European modernism, anti-colonial nationalism, and state socialism-all in the context of a growing neoliberal economy marked by American global dominance. At this crucial intersection of culture, politics, and economy, Egypt's art and artists provide unique insight into current struggles for cultural identity and sovereignty in the Middle East. This book examines the heated cultural politics in today's Arab world, and tells how art-making has become an unexpectedly central part of that. It offers a lively analysis of the battles between artists, curators, and audiences over cultural authenticity, cultural policy, public art in a changing urban Egypt, and the new global marketing of Egyptian art. The art world it shows powerfully exemplifies how people in the Middle East reckon with global transformations that are changing how culture is made in societies with colonial and socialist pasts." from the publisher

Claiming Egypt : the cultural politics of artistic practice in a postcolonial society by Jessica Winegar ( )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dissertation is a study of the cultural politics that shape visual art practice in contemporary Egypt. Seeking to go beyond facile dismissals of non-Western modern art as derivative or epiphenomenal, it shows that the local debates around the practice of such art are key to understanding the tension between nationalist claims and cosmopolitan ambitions that is central to postcolonial elite life. The debates also capture the shifting nature of cultural nationalisms in the context of post-Cold War neoliberal reforms. Through ethnographic examination of the social relations and various sites of artistic production and consumption, the dissertation argues that for indigenous cultural elites, the definitions of and claims to the nation are undergoing significant transformation. Nonetheless, the nation continues to be the primary frame through which these elites negotiate global forces
