Charles Tripp (SOAS): ‘Creative performances: Violence, nonviolence and the struggle for public space in the Middle East’
October 28, 2014 @ 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
The recent uprisings in the Middle East have witnessed the re-emergence of an activist public through the struggle to re-appropriate public spaces in cities across the region. An important part of this process has been public performance, often using strategies of nonviolence, and equally often met by the violence of established power. These processes have brought new forces into being, helping to create a distinctive, if sometimes disturbing political landscape.
