Among the root causes of the Middle-Eastern backwardness is the Asiatic and fatalistic religious norms that hamper the imagination and freedom of our masses. In that regard, the reconstruction of al-Azhar, Sunni Islam’s top authority, should rank high among Egyptian security strategists’ priorities. Al-Azhar, the ancient religious institution it is, borders on antiquated ideals and does not play a constructive role. For a plethora of complex historical reasons, al-Azhar has failed to tread the path taken by European universities that developed from theological and religious institutions into legal ones that have, over time, morphed into secular universities. This evolution of learning is what brought about the renaissance and the scientific revolutions of centuries past and thus launching Western civilization into progress, prosperity and modernity.
The Art of Egyptian Film Posters collects together old Egyptian film posters from the 1930s to the 1990s, when they were painted by hand, and did not depend on graphic design. After a first volume of 190 film posters published in September 2014, a second volume now shows an extra 200 posters, without chronological order, accompanied by enlightening articles such as “Posters and censorship”, or even “The Greek period and its influence on the art of posters in Egypt”. Though still young, Fathy unveils the long-forgotten artists behind these works of art.
