In 2011, when crowds of Egyptians demonstrated against Mubarak’s regime, national television showed empty streets. Subsequently, the Mosireen Collective gathered hundreds of videos from people who captured the events with their cameras and mobile phones. The Archive contains 858 hours of indexed video footage, thousands of photographs and documents. All together, they show thousands of narratives of the rebellion told from hundreds of perspectives. These comprise a set of tools which we can use to challenge state-controlled history and to build new stories.
