DREAM at the “Hr/k حر\ك : Eighteen days of events in commemoration of the revolutions in the North Africa and West Asia region”

With the DREAM-Conference “Hirak and thawara in the Maghreb, 2010 – TODAY” which takes place online, on January 26, 2021, from 14h00 – 19h00, we are pleased to contribute to a series of events organised in commemoration of the revolutions of the  North Africa and West Asia region.

These events are organised  by the Non-governmental organisation NAWARA .  Hereafter there are some further information on the idea and the concept of the Hr/k حر\ك .

“2021 marks the 10-year anniversary of the wave of revolutions that erupted across the North Africa West Asia (NAWA) region in late 2010 and early 2011. This presents itself as an opportunity to commemorate the revolutions and a chance to critically reflect on their aftermath, including counter-revolutionary backlashes, waves of displacement and exile, and pervasive forms of state repression.  

Inspired by the course of 18 days in which the Egyptian revolution initially unfolded (from the 25th of January to the 11th of February 2011) and by the diverse forms of expression that the revolutionaries used to communicate their demands, hopes and dreams, Hrk is a series of events that will take place in Berlin on 18 different days throughout 2021 to engage the NAWA diaspora communities in Germany in a range of commemoration activities. The idea is to transcend commemoration beyond fixed dates and places, to trace the afterlives of the revolutions across the NAWA region as a continuum,as a constant flow of movement that does not confine itself to sheer remembering, but attempts to shape new realities.

We aim to depict and highlight continuous ‘movement’ as opposed to the narrative of ‘stagnation’ that is now frequently associated with the so-called failure of the revolutions. We aim to showcase and celebrate the ways in which NAWA revolutionaries and their diverse array of comrades from the region and beyond have continued to engage in various forms of activism, thinking about, narrating and continuing the revolution in imaginative, inventive ways, all while moving across borders and between countries.”

“L’esprit des révolutions arabes” : entretien Mediapart de Leyla Dakhli, 16 décembre 2020

Après la sortie de L’esprit de la révolte. Archives et actualités des révolutions arabes et à l’occasion des 10 ans des premiers soulèvements arabes, Leyla Dakhli s’est entretenue avec le journaliste Joseph Confavreux en décembre dernier pour le journal Mediapart.

L’anniversaire des révolutions arabes y est un prétexte pour discuter de “l’esprit” de ces dernières dans une histoire toujours en train de se faire à travers diverses figures, mouvements sociaux et symboles dont certains témoignages, certaines traces et archives, constituent la genèse même de l’ouvrage collectif L’esprit de la révolte.
