Explore the Egyptian modernist art movement and representations of the body. Amina Diab, a PhD student at the University of York, discusses representations of women and their influences pre- 1952 revolution, under the royal family, and post- 1952 revolution, under military rule. Join us as we investigate gender and space in modern day Egypt.
Amina’s talk is part of a series of events organised by the York Islamic Art Circle, a collaboration between the University of York’s Islamic Society and Department of History of Art.
