The text, reading “Of course the army has protected the revolution”, a sentence regularly propagated by the Egyptian regime since the spark of the Egyptian revolution, is juxtaposed against the backdrop of one protestor who’s gotten a taste of that protection first hand. Known as “The Blue Bra Girl”, this woman was unclothed, severely kicked, and beaten by several Military Police officers on December 17th, 2011, during a protest calling on the illegitimacy of the Egyptian Parliament.

Designed in Cairo, Egypt, 2013. Printed in Brooklyn, NY in 2014 at the Bushwick Print Lab.

Media: screenprint on paper, with hand-colored paint (either water-based paint, spraypaint, or paint-marker)
