كن مع الثورة - BE WITH THE REVOLUTION - ARQAAM Exhibition
'كن مع الثورة - BE WITH THE REVOLUTION' the emblem is making a comeback in the form of a limited edition NFT.
I designed this emblem in April 2008 in solidarity with the call for a general strike in Egypt then.
The narrative of "revolution" was not present in my daily life nor something I've ever imagined to live one day, but I used it speculating about a future in which we revolt.
Now ten years after the 2011 revolution and 13 years since I designed the emblem, I only feel all the heaviness. Sharing this emblem now is not to activate it but only for the memory's sake.
In 2016, the makers of the American propaganda movie "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" stole the artwork without my permission. Then, they had it sprayed over the walls of what is supposed to be Libya.
ARQAAM is produced by Wizara, a new ecosystem designed by artists for artists on the blockchain.
