About EWWE

FOCUS DU BLOG EWWE : Occident/Orient,  Orient/Occident, Moyen Orient, Maghreb, par le biais de l’ Art , la Culture et l’ Histoire.

EastWestWestEast tente de porter un regard décentré sur l’ “Orient”, le monde “arabo-musulman” et sa”diaspora”. Explorant notamment les relations entre “Orient” et “Occident” dans différentes combinaisons possibles.

Orient et Occident n’étant pas des lieux géographiques déterminés, aux contours précis et fixes, mais plutôt des représentations, des constructions, relevant d’un certain imaginaire. Il est en fait délicat de véritablement faire la part des choses, et distinguer clairement ce qui relèverait de l’un ou de l’autre.

FOCUS OF EWWE: Middle East, North Africa, East/West relations through contemporary art, cultural practices/studies and history.

This blog explores the complex relations between East and West, especially through the prism of culture, art and history. EWWE moves beyond the simplistic idea of a supposedly binary world, standing against the idea of a so-called “clash of  civilizations”, and aims instead for an active intercultural dialogue.
