‘Everything is fragmented and fluid and unstable and hopeful and dangerous. We have insights and connections and blank spaces and questions. “Mina’s Banner” is the phrase I need to use now – but what will it mean by the time we reach May?’ Ahdaf Soueif, Cairo, 5 February 2012
Opening remarks by Omar Al-Qattan, introduction by Jacqueline Rose.
