This project explores how different actors and protest movements across the Middle East and North Africa region use cameras and images as part of their wider struggles for justice; as part of their practices to record, express and enact resistance.

We advance a media practice-based approach, with ethnographic field studies, in order to learn more about the actual practices of creating and distributing contentious images within new media and political environments, and what these practices mean to people as political subjects in the region.

You’ll be able to read about our project and the different case studies we’re working on here. Also keep an eye on our blog section, we’ll be documenting our field work and research trips on there, and would love to hear your feedback! Do get in touch on resistancebyrecording@gmail.com.
