گيمر وبرتقال الوطن

[لوحة للفنان الفلسطيني كامل المغني]

تحت وطأة ما يسميه البعض بالحداثة وعملية التحدث التي تحمل بداخلها كل معاني الإستعمارية الرأسمالية نشهد اندثار كل ما لا يناسب قوالب هذه العملية. مع توغل رأس المال في واقع الكثيرين وتسلله في ثنايا الحياة اليومية تندثر عادات وممارسات كانت في الماضي جزءًا جوهريًا من الواقع المجتمعي. فيختفي بائع الحليب الذي كان يمر بالبيوت يوميًا وعربة الفول المتجولة، وتصبح فكرة التخصص في الطعام أمرًا ترفيهيًا، لأن المدن التي تعتلي الإعلانات المضاءة بناياتها توفر لنا راحة المركزية التي تجمع كل شيء في المكان ذاته. لذلك يتحول أي شيء آخر إلى مضيعة للوقت وإهدارًا للمالِ والطاقةِ في عالم يحسب كل شيء بمنطق الربح والخسارة. لكن في سياق هذا العالم الذي أصبح أكثر سرعةً وأكثر تنقلًا حيث ينتقل البعض من ...

[Sabry in his engineering job, 2013. Photo by Mounir, Sabry’s brother.]

In August 2016, Sabry’s brother sprayed an image of Sabry’s face and bandaged limbs, clasped between the claws of an ominous scorpion, onto a wall in downtown Cairo. Next to it was a piece of text that began: “It is the third Eid that Sabry is spending in prison without having done anything wrong or against the law.” With this graffiti, he publicly appealed to the state for Sabry's freedom. “On the day of Arafa and the following four days of Eid, the prisoners are completely locked in,” says Sabry’s mother. Just before Eid 2016, she had made a trip to the Tora maximum security prison, whose grisly reputation has also earned it the name ”Scorpion.” To cover her son’s ...
