Master class with Cecilia Uddén: Power and media

In Egypt , we have no media anymore, we have a propaganda tool. The authorities speak to the people as if they were talking to the army via an internal radio. The only thing that is important is the message that will be sent to the soldiers.

This is the description given by the Egyptian author Alaa Al Aswany recently about the media situation in Egypt five years after the revolution, in an interview with Swedish Radio’s Middle Eastern correspondent Cecilia Uddén. Cecilia Uddén gives her image of power and unfree media in the Middle East in this master class, in Foajé 3 at Kulturhuset City Theatre.

Presented in collaboration with Kulturhuset City Theatre,
