From February 5 – 22, Townhouse is hosting “In Print” in the First Floor Gallery. “In Print” is a project that looks at alternative approaches to the printed page, inviting three Cairo-based, DIY initiatives (Zine El-Arab, TokTok, and Cairobserver) to set up temporary printing bureaus in the First Floor Gallery. The practitioners behind each of these Arabic-language projects (Ganzeer, Mohamed Shennawy, and Mohamed Elshahed, respectively) will be working on their publications in the gallery space, meeting with their collaborators, and discussing their initiatives with the general public. (You can learn more about each of the projects here: www.ganzeer.blogspot.com; www.toktok.com; and www.cairobserver.com). A fourth room in the gallery will serve as a reading room where visitors can consult a curated selection of publications.
