Le féminisme islamique repose sur l’idée que le Coran lui-même affirme le principe d’égalité entre tous les êtres humains : ce sont l’idéologie et les pratiques patriarcales qui sont venues entraver la réalisation de l’égalité entre hommes et femmes. La jurisprudence islamique (fiqh), au moment où elle s’est consolidée, a été envahie par les conceptions et comportements patriarcaux de l’époque et c’est cette version patriarcale de la jurisprudence qui a modelé les différentes formulations de la shari’a1. Une des tâches fondamentales du féminisme islamique est donc de contextualiser les interprétations qui ont été faites des textes par des exégètes masculins qui ont visé à justifier leur propre domination masculine. Il s’agit d’opérer une distinction essentielle entre ce qui relève du contingent, de l’interprétation humaine et contextuelle, et ce qui relève de l’universel dans les textes.
Ma great grand mother use to watch Egyptian soaps and when someone would ask why given that she didn’t speak arabic, she’d answer, je m’oriente, I orientate myself.
Today I orientated myself in a conversation in darija and masri, I was quite proud of myself. I was unmasked when Muhammad’s interlocutor asked (in arabic) if Nubia was next to the Libyan border and I was so into the conversation that I automatically said “la” and 4 pairs of eyes turned to me, perplexed.
At the end I was asked in french if I was french (yes) and if I spoke egyptian. And then I missed a beautiful occasion. Instead of showing “a little” in between my thumb and index finger, I could have, I should have said “shweya”. THEN I would have been the true Queen of Orientation my friends.
lametisse that’s one of the reasons I couldn’t live in the UK tbh. No pressure, crazy temperatures, humidity I mean, there was a snail living in the bathroom.
|A:||So in the UK, do rich people have pressure in their shower or is it the same shit for everyone|
|M:||I think you've got to have a really good boiler, I don't know. All my life I had a shower that trickled. When I came to Lyon the first time and took a shower I was like woaaah|
|A:||That's why you came to live with me|
|M:||Yeah I came for your shower. I thought "She's got that good pressure"|
After the course finishes I’m going to try and let all the things I learned and experienced here for the past three months infuse.
I need to figure out from all the things I’m doing at the moment, which ones have to be prioritised (doesn’t mean the others are less important, simply they are less urgent) and put a little of all this design1o1 energy in them…
So… acting because hey, that’s what I do for a living after all (and the next two months will be a lot about that), embroidering for the OuBroPo, making videos and stopmotion animation to present my work, studying art-therapy, making a book with children… many good things ahead !
My favourite assignment was not the one that required the most hard work (like the Camera Obscura one) but the 075, An Elastic & String Story.
It is my favourite by far because Mu Um took it and made it more poetic and more funny than I could have hoped, and I was really touched to see that this course allowed people from so far away to share ideas, support, and laughs, in such a short time !
And these past days have only proved me even more right, as many many people in the arena worked hard, sending gigabytes of video, sounds, images, texts above our respective countries, to make the shipment for today, 098, and once again, it is thanks to the crazy energy of Mu Um :)
Kiss kiss, love love !
