A creative alliance between AISE and KEMET Art & Design, celebrating the Arts Fest from 14th to 19th of April 2018

The world renowned Armando Milani’s was in Cairo once again! KEMET collaborated with IED and the Italian Cultural Institute in Cairo to bring Milani’s exhibition “less ME, more WE” to Egypt! Focusing on the issue of sustainability, the exhibition was a 48-poster journey through his career facing social issues, from the early days in Europe and the US, to the results of his most recent project: Ubuntu. Ubuntu included the work of some of KEMET’s talented students. The opening conference included speeches and interventions by the Director of Italian Cultural Institute Dr. Paalo Sabbatini, Designer Armando Milani, Prof. Marzia Lodi from IED and Mrs. Sally Hallawa from Kemet.

Our students had the golden chance to have their work internationally featured! In collaboration with IED, the chosen works were displayed in IED’s March exhibition and will be considered for Armando Milani’s next book, which includes designs from all over the world! It has been an exciting journey for everyone, with an inspirational theme behind the work: UBUNTU. Ubuntu means humanity or humanity towards others. There are several different interpretations of the word, but at the heart of each definition is the contentedness that exists or should exist between people. It is an African, humanist philosophy that is a way of thinking about what it means to be human, and how we, as humans, should behave towards others. Archbishop Tutu described ubuntu like this, “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours.” Ubuntu was a word used by Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu based on respect, collaboration and empathy for all human beings. It is a systemic way of thinking.
