About:
While men are only passing through, women remain. And in this bourgeois living room in Cairo, men take up all the space. A place that serves at once to protect family intimacy and to welcome visitors from the outside, this ordinary location provides Ahmed El Attar with countless possibilities to express the symbolic and physical imprisonment of the Arab woman and her children.
