These accounts pose a strong critique of the narrative construction on their official website mosireen. Has It failed? These critiques express a different narrative of the Tunisian revolution, one enacted by the large category of unemployed or underemployed citizens, whose Anglistica AION Working paper.

My analysis will seek to sketch the modalities employed by , new media and art in delineating critical cultural practices able to enhance the radical content of the revolution and promote it in the unstable post-revolutionary society, despite ongoing forms of censorship. Before this date, mediactivism in Tunisia was massively hindered and repressed.

For this reason the few who engaged in it before the revolution generally shared a certain political awareness and a significant will to take risks as in the case of the citizen journalism 18 Nawaat is an independent journalism project practiced by platforms such as Nawaat or bloggers such as Lina Ben Mhenni.

Lina Ben Mhenni is the It can be said that just like the revolution represented a rebirth of mass politics most famous Tunisian blogger. The first concern of Tunisians who now had the chance to bypass the media controlled by the regime after the fall of censorship was to employ their social media profiles and blogs to expose the brutality of state oppression, thus producing an initial focus on police brutality, torture, repression of protestors and state corruption.

My argument is that new media is one of the environments that certain media and art techno-collectives partially inhabited when developing their resistance to the dominant narratives on the Tunisian revolution.

In doing so, they focus on specific concerns and feelings which animate the Tunisian society and are often disregarded by hegemonic discourses. Especially after the fear of terrorism has monopolized the debate as has happened in the summer of , considering approaches which provide a critical understanding of the revolution while also fostering resistant cultural practices is more relevant than ever.

At the same time they show through their practices how media and art can contribute to intensify the struggle against oppression: be it by countering dominant narratives or unequal and repressive states whether pre- or post- revolutionary. Furthermore, the new media environment for what concerns both information and art is also relevant in terms of gendered participation, since it blurs the boundaries of the public space both media- and politics-wise that many Tunisian girls and women feel excluded from.

What is produced, in this way, is a new space of debate, fueled by numerous women bloggers, activists, actresses, artists, and journalists. When considering the girls and women s production of new media 2 2 connected discourses, however, we also have to consider a few elements.

Firstly, that the usage of Internet communication technologies ICT which goes beyond the maintenance of social media profiles involving more complex skills such as 3 journalistic writing, acting, editing is still limited to middle-class categories, which 3 have had the chance to attain education.

Philosophers and Ants: To create is to resist 6 7 In , not too far away from the Republic Square in the Tunisian capital, several boys and girls start vivaciously decorating an old wall in bright white and red stencils, producing mysterious iconographic portraits, short cryptic quotes and an apparent invasion of ants coming out of a hole.

The recent revolution apparently suspended censorship and authoritarian control, nevertheless this creative appropriation of a public wall appears highly audacious. A policeman stops and interrogates the artists, afraid they might be drawing something subversive. Just 4philosophers and ants , they answer. Their quotes in Arabic symbolically mark the strivings of the young artists in the immediate aftermath of the revolution: I m writing in order to be banned Choukri , Power can always 4 2 5 4 be broken somewhere Negri , Intellectuals have to witness the badness of using 5 4 Anglistica AION Whereas the hole in the wall, which allows the ants to storm in the picture, could be read as a metaphor of the initial opening up of the public sphere, most visibly through citizen journalism, a temporary fault in the monolithic censorship system of both Tunisia and Egypt, in the process of currently re-articulating itself.

In this sense, the following examples will be exploring the expressive possibilities granted by the relative liberation of the public sphere and the ways Tunisian and Egyptian techno- collectives have fostered new expressive sensibilities. Such a project reveals the thematic area of interest of a rising generation of journalists in the post- revolutionary period.

New York: Oxford University Press, In broad terms, the implicit bargain underlying the nature of political rule in the region has required citizens to surrender their political and social rights to partici- patory government. Furthermore, the interventions of the collectives and artists merge theory with practice, always irreversibly altering the matter and subjects they are engaging with, be it the memory of the revolutionary events or the struggles of the disenfranchised in Tunisia and Egypt.
