I can not say there is no real art in Egypt and the artists should not claim they are afraid of the Muslim Brotherhood to eradicate arts . Most of the works of Art,. whether they are films or plays performed in theatres or episodes or soaps - as the American say - we can call them art ,instead they corrupted the tastes of the audience . I must not say that bread , now is more important than art , , no , on the contrary , arts modulate the awareness of people , because man is not a stomach or indestines walking on the ground .But , absorbing art is what distinguishes between man and animal .
Mubarak is responsible for culture and arts genocide in Egypt , so that he could rule the people easier . Don't forget that those who toppled Mubarak's regime were the educated youth who know how to deal with modern tools of culture and technology .
Now the sponsors of arts in Egypt are those who actually spoil art through their trivial , non art- works all day , all the time .
in fact , I can't say there are no great talented writers or directors , or composers , or singers or playwrights in Egypt , but , the producers , those who have the capital do not care because they are not educated , they are not talented enough to develop the cultural process. so , we lost our cultural impression in Arab countries , after we were leading their artistic tastes.
