Intermedial Satire in Moroccan and Tunisian Rap Videos
Starting with a re-examination of satire in terms of its relation to power and culture, this chapter then examines the impact of the Arab Spring on the workings of satire in rap music videos in Morocco and Tunisia. The study of a large number of rap videos produced during and after the 2011 uprising has shown that substantial change in the rap text and its visual support has occurred, making satire more transgressive, more topical, and more critical of the political and social order. These forms of intermedial satire has been energized and shifted to a position of dominance, giving voice to the hopes of all the community – and to its fears as well, casting, at times, a shadow over the accomplished change.
