D-CAF - Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival

Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) is Egypt’s first international multi-disciplinary contemporary arts festival. The 6th edition of D-CAF (#DCAF17) will take place over three weeks from the 17th of March to the 8th of April 2017 at multiple sites in Downtown Cairo. D-CAF will include local, regional and international music, theatre, dance, visual arts and film by cutting-edge artists from Egypt, the Arab world, and beyond. In addition to featuring established Downtown cultural spaces and theatres, D-CAF uses non-traditional sites such as historical buildings, storefronts, alleyways, and rooftops as sites for performances, events, and arts installations, with the aim of bringing audiences and performers to engage with the city in a new way. With its diverse and first-rate programming, D-CAF aspires to become one of the most important annual Arab art events by reaching out to a broad spectrum of Egyptian audiences, creating bridges between Arab artists, international curators and programmers, as well as capitalising on Downtown Cairo’s unique cultural, social and architectural heritage. Furthermore, the D-CAF team seeks not just to bring the best in international contemporary culture to Cairo, but also to deliver a highly professional and well-publicised international festival.

متحف الفن المعاصر للفنان مانويل بلموس (رومانيا)
تكمن الفكرة وراء المشروع في تجسيد مجموعة دائمة محتملة أو متحف محتمل للفنون المعاصرة من خلال الحركة والأجساد والأحاديث والأصوات. وباستخدام مانيفستوهات وإشارات ووقائع من أربعينيات القرن العشرين حتى الآن، ركز متحف الفن المعاصر على الطرق التي اعتدنا أن نرى بها الفن الحديث والمعاصر في مصر. كذلك، مثّل بناية كوداك وممرها أيضاً نقطة التقاء للجمهور، بالإضافة إلى كونها منصة لسلسلة من المحاضرات المسائية والمناقشات وعروض الأفلام والندوات مع الفنانين.

An art project conceived by Romanian artist Manuel Pelmuş.
The idea was to enact a potential museum of contemporary art through movements, bodies, speeches and voices. Using manifestos, gestures and incidents from the 1940s until today, the MoCA focused on the ways we are used to see modern and contemporary art in Egypt.
