“FORCE MAJEURE”
2009 a partnership contract is signed, uniting five institutions from five Mediterranean cities under the umbrella of a “Miniatures” project, supported by the European Union’s “Third Countries” collaborations exchange schemes. December 2010: a revolution erupts in Tunis. January 2011: a revolution erupts in Egypt. Within a state of emergency, and under martial law previous agreements are rendered legally and conceptually obsolete. “Force Majeure” is an artistic position/ encounter that tries to reassemble elements of an event previously engineered by regional scripted politics of exchange, and takes a stance to look at those elements and exchange modes processing this publicly through different platforms.
“Force Majeure” rejects the position of culture and the arts as a commodity offered on smoothed grounds, or as a propagandist political backdrop. It prefers the friction generated within a turbulent socio-political condition as a host, hoping to reassert the position of arts within the current Egyptian reality as a necessary space for alternative political thinking and the artistic moment of encounter as a site for reworking preset givens, or at least as an invitation to step into possibilities.
Adham Hafez

“Force Majeure” comes as a direct reaction to a contingent political reality, it happens in a context in which an artistic collaboration was supposed to happen with a specific political and production parameters within a no longer existing political reality. This forced the local host, the artistic partners and other involved parties to question the meaning of their position towards each other and towards this so-called collaboration.
The artists were commissioned through a network of five partners: Officina (Marseilles), HaRaKa (Cairo), L’Animal A L’Esquena (Barcelona), El Teatro (Tunis) and Indisciplinarte (Terni). The project “Miniatures Officinae” originally conceived by Officina took the relationship to the other as a departure point, and the Miniature as a form of interest. Miniatures being a historical artifact for the region and traditional format of documenting, illustrating, preserving, perpetuating not only national narratives but narratives about the other was chosen as the form and format for this artistic production process. It thus became an operative concept that allowed the artists to explore its meaning and possibilities, developing such strategies as minimalism, condensation, illustration, abstraction, and over-identification.

The artists used the Miniatures in a way of questioning if there are really shared historical narratives between those partners, whether this relationality could be expressed through this common medium? If this medium is valid at all?

The different ways through which artists responded was an indication of the evolving relationality and the continuous changing notion of otherness as the project unfolded through residencies within the Mediterranean region.
Egypt was chosen as a site for these works to be presented in 2009. In the light of a new unfolding reality and clear conceptual challenges to all kinds of artistic practices and partnerships working in Egypt, the miniatures project now comes under the clause, ‘ Force Majeure’

The very roles of its partners unpremeditatedly redefined and irreversibly changed. This process comes by ‘force’ of the events that are taking place across the Middle East region, the so-called ‘Other’, and raises the question of how valid are the previous assumptions about otherness and collaborating with the other and whether or not these assumptions and perceptions hold true in light of continuing changing reality.
The partners in this project seek to critically engage with this reality and support the position that art practices must adapt and evolve by continually questioning and problematizing the ways and contexts in which they are created.
Ismail Fayed

”Force Majeure” presents ten newly commissioned miniatures from the artists: Andrea Abbatengelo (Italy), Marie AlFajr (France/Egypt), Shaymaa Aziz(Egypt), Leo Castro (Spain), Ammar Habli (Tunis), Christoph Haleb(France), Gruppo Nanou (Italy), Filiz Sizanli(Turkey), Imen Smaoui(Tunis), Carme Torent (Spain)
