Per Huttner will be in residency at Out of the Circle in Cairo in March 2020. The goal is to start to outline the project Romanticism Reversed. The project uses the power of art, technology and media to actively work to empower women in the area. The project traces its roots in Romanticism and Romantic Art. The artistic movement was a counter reaction to the failed revolution that was inspired by ideas from the Enlightenment. This also means that, the situation shows many similarities with today where the Arab Spring failed meet the hopes that it inspired in people. The project will look at the first half of the 19th century and what can be learned from that time to empower and enrich women’s lives, women’s art and women’s media in the Middle East today.
