Nazar - Arab eyes

Rawi Hage

DEVELOPING AND THE UNDERDEVELOPED (1998)

In the view of Rawi Hage, little has changed in the former colonies. The colonial elite has simply been replaced by a national elite, which lives according to the same norms. Hage converted his critique into a series of photographs for which he had a number of wealthy Lebanese families pose with their domestic staff. In a glance one can see that class differences still exist. The maid in her uniform reminds one of colonial times and the gaudy interiors, which look like they came from a soap opera, seem to want to evoke the atmosphere of a colonial mansion.
