The research explores the reconfiguration of artistic practices and political engagement of Egyptian artists who have resettled in Europe in the last ten years.

It analyses how the experience of ‘becoming stranger’ affects the political subjectivities of artists and in turn their creations. The central methodology of collecting data is based on ethnographic fieldwork in the cultural fields of Berlin and Marseille.
