Aliaa the Nude Blogger
This is an artwork project that I have done in solidarity with Aliaa Magda Elmahdy a 20 year old university student/activist/blogger from Cairo, Egypt.
On October 23rd Aliaa posted nude pictures of herself and her boyfriend (Kareem Amer) on her blog, which lead to some saying that she publicly challenged Egypt’s social strictures. She later on described this as “screams against a society of violence, racism, sexism, sexual harassment and hypocrisy” on her facebook page.
Elmahdy’s blog received over 2 million hits with a number of insults. Fearing of becoming tainted in the eyes of Islamic conservatives, Egyptian liberals distanced themselves from Elmahdy.
She is also known as the ‘Nude Blogger’ or ‘Naked Blogger’ in the cyberworld.
When I researched articles about her I found an image that instantly trigged this design.
As you can see the piece holds a lot of details, the image below is just an example to show you how much you can experience out of this design.
