This panel examines the transformations of regions through online media tools with a focus on Arab and Chinese youth. Researcher Zafka Zhang (China Youthology), new media curator Nat Muller and artist Ghalia Elsrakbi talk about the intersections of aesthetics, media and politics – tracing movements such as the “Grass Mud Horse”, a cheekily vulgar meme that arose on the Chinese internet as a symbol of defiance to the “Great Firewall” and the covert operations of the Syrian Electronic Army and their reframing of Disney characters. Chaired by Omar Kholeif, curator at FACT, Liverpool and Senior Editor at Ibraaz Publishing.

This program is made possible by Ibraaz Publishin.
