Much has been said about the democratising impact of digital media, yet perhaps not a lot with regards to the Arab world. n this region videos are emerging in a landscape saturated with fabricated images, and in which the means of fabrication and dissemination seem to be the exclusive monopoly either of those in control of the public sphere or those in control of the market. The selection of works in this programme attempts to illustrate the various ways in which digital media are used to subvert genres and challenge dominant media emissions in situations of political crises or violence. Streaming videos on the net is yet another story. The online platform Arabshorts.net is a pioneering experiment on many levels and will be presented and discussed as part of this programme.
