SHIFT DELETE 30

Artwork by: Ahmed Abdel Fattah

An arrangement of 13 Egyptian artists reconsidering the past 30 years, born within the late 1970s to mid 1980s, bring their criticisms towards the previous Egyptian regime, and realizing the past 30 years as a time for national reflection on what had happened to them personally, collectively, and internationally in the eyes of social politics. Alternatively the times of change being faced since the Arab Spring, due to the critical presence of the “Artist as Citizen” in the contemporary Egyptian streets, we have come to realize that the 30 preceding years needed to be erased, or in some cases revised, developed and reintroduced from the artist’s perspective. Hence, the name “Shift Delete 30,” is that act of socio-political criticism, reexamination, and deletion of 30 years of social and political anarchy.
