Edward Said On 'Orientalism' Best known for his monumental 1978 work, "Orientalism," Edward Said (1935-2003), literary critic, Palestinian activist, and former Columbia professor (English and Comparative Literature) helped initiate 'post-colonial studies' arguing that all discourse, particularly discourse about other cultures, is inherently ideological: "My contention is that Orientalism is fundamentally a political doctrine willed over the Orient because the Orient was weaker than the West, which elided the Orient's difference with its weakness. . . . As a cultural apparatus Orientalism is all aggression, activity, judgment, will-to-truth, and knowledge" In this clip, questions are raised about the West's nefarious judgments of Muslims -- with which they rarely have direct contact -- and the cross-cultural role of Hollywood and the mass media in terms of creating ideological categories: "Orientalism operates as representations usually do, for a purpose, according to a tendency, in a specific historical, intellectual, and even economic setting." The piece begins with major US media venues wrongly indicting Muslims for the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing in 1995 ...
Egyptian Orientalist Photography(1843 -1920)- Farhat Art Museum - (Balady-Dalida) Egyptian Orientalist Photography(1843 -1920)- Farhat Art Museum by Farhat Art Museum (videos) Photos by Louis Royer and Clovis Aufière,Felix Bonflix ,Francis Frith ,Béchard,Dumas and others Bonflix consentrated mostly on picturing the Old Egypt while [Louis] Royer and [Clovis] Aufière had a partnership in Cairo probably during the early 1860s. The work of this pair is rare and identified photographs have consisted mostly of cartes-de-visite portraits of native types taken in the studio, some of which are beautifully composed. They are also important as they represent examples of early photographic representations of native people. Royer and Aufière were succeeded by Ermé Desiré. As Desiré is listed as being in Cairo from 1865, it seems likely that Royer and Aufière had only a short career in Egypt. In about 1863, Royer opened a studio at 15, rue Cannebière in Marseilles and was joined there by Aufière in around 1865. By the time Francis Frith was photographing in Egypt in 1856--and largely because of his work--an aesthetic richness had taken hold in Orientalist photography that would bring it closer to the reality of the street and indigenous populations. Photography—both professional and amateur—provided a ready means to capture religious fêtes and festivals and the sites of their performance which have since undergone rapid development.

Edward Said: On Orientalism Edward Said's book Orientalism has been profoundly influential in a diverse range of disciplines since its publication in 1978. In this engaging and lavishly illustrated interview he talks about the context within which the book was conceived, its main themes, and how its original thesis relates to the contemporary understanding of "the Orient" as represented in the mass media. "That's the power of the discourse of Orientalism. If you're thinking about people and Islam, and about that part of the world, those are the words you constantly have to use. To think past it, to go beyond it, not to use it, is virtually impossible, because there is no knowledge that isn't codified in this way about that part of the world." -Edward Said
Veil / No Veil - Orientalist Photography -Farhat Art Museum مكادي نحاس FACEBOOK During the nineteeth century the western world had divided North Africa and the Middle East among themselves. When the western powers divided the Middle East, the French colonized North Africa and the Levantine countries. During that period, the French as colonizors looked down on the North Africans as primitive, uncivilized easy to control and exploit. The young girls and young women were exploited through their art. Among the most famous of the Orientalist painters was Jean-Leon Gerome born (1824- 1904), who mainly depicted the Arab women within the Bath Houses or in the Market Place. Gerome also had students who followed in his footsteps with the Orientalist approach in depicting the Arab women in degradating situations. The myth of Shahrazad and Arabian Nights lived in Geromes paintings. Because of the high demand for such genre in art from the French and the Western World, Gerome was able to live up to the demands of the colonizors and fill the need for the exploitation of the African and Arab women. In photography, the French took their cameras to North Africa, not to document the long history and civilization of Africa, but to prey on the young and lovely girls, in need of a few Francs, by photographing them some semi *** and others fully *** again, to supply the demand of the ***ed and hard French culture. A century later, France finds itself in another confrontation and clash with Eastern culture. In ...

Mickey Boston - Orientalism (Letter to Bernard Lewis) Dear Bernard, Please Enjoy. Sincerely, MB *** Follow the lyrics. Understand the Story. Montreal Underground hip-hop artist MB explores "Orientalism" with a rather intriguing discourse. In essence, "Orientalism" was a term perhaps established by the late Edward Said of Columbia University. After having completed his Master's in literature in 2006, Mickey Boston had decided to revisit "Orientalism" in a post-9/11 era. In its bare essence, "Orientalism" is primarily a term used for the depiction of aspects of Eastern cultures in the West by writers, designers and artists. What it is is the West transposing it's ideals and stereotypes on the East, particularly those ideals that are misconceptions and myths of the "other," in this case, it is most likely Arabs and Muslims as a whole. Beyond the English, "Orientalism" was more widely used to refer to the works of French artists in the 19th century, who used artistic elements derived from their travels to non-European countries of in North Africa and Western Asia. Nonetheless, the 20th century saw considerable change in the term's usage. In 1978 American scholar Edward Said, published his influential and controversial book, Orientalism; he used the term to describe a pervasive Western tradition, both academic and artistic, of prejudiced outsider interpretations of the East, shaped by the attitudes of European imperialism in the 18th and 19th centuries. Said was critical of both this scholarly tradition and of ...

Electric Organ and Orientalism: An Odyssey Duke found an ***og electric organ in front of an Ohio school, bought it for 1$, lugged it back to his Michigan house without his parents knowing, and I happened upon it one day during a visit. It produced some of the finest sounds I have ever encountered, and we started jamming on the spot. This was completely spur of the moment, pretty much all improvised with the exception of a few musical quotes, and recorded with an Olympus VN-6200PC digital voice recorder that I use for class lectures placed atop the instrument. After a minute of play the pace and tone of the jam finally emerges. I'm not a trained keyboardist--playing with both hands in sync is a feat in itself, but I was pretty much in the zone while playing (minus a couple goofs in rhythmic timing). The effects were evocative of music from the Doors and I ran with that before diving into a few "orientalist" musical stereotypes (philosopher Edward Said would probably remark on that at least, check out this excellent interview on his thoughts: youtu.be His articulation of orientalism comments on how we perceive and portray other cultures--and how our portrayals are consistent with our beliefs, but not the actual reality of the people to whom we imbue them onto. This phenomenon can apply to how we look at anyone that we don't necessarily identify with!). You can hear me explore various layers of sound, riff in a gypsy mode (01:01), play some borderline psychedelic stuff (~ 01:44), invent some kind of march at 07:33 ...
