What do you mean, here we are?

'What do you mean, here we are?' is a retrospective of the Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, Egypt. Through a series of visual, video material and sound art as well as pamphlets, catalogues and ephemera, this exhibition tells the story of Townhouse’s evolution from a modest start in the backstreets of downtown Cairo to its emergence at the centre of the regional contemporary art scene, and further across more recent periods of turmoil and re-configuration.

'What do you mean, here we are?' will feature works by artists including Doa Aly, Lara Baladi, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Mona Hatoum, Nermine Hammam, Susan Hefuna, Amal Kenawy, Khaled Kaddal, Huda Lutfi, Basim Magdy, Shady El Noshokaty, Wouter Osterholt and Elke Uitentuis, Ayman Ramadan, Mohamed Sharkawy, Wael Shawky and Malak Yacout.

Wouter Osterholt receives support for his participation in 'What do you mean, here we are?'. He also received support for the participation of Elke Uitenthuis, with whom he used to form an artist duo.
