Chapter 5 explores the 20 February Movement in Morocco. It argues that this movement represents an inaugurative moment that set into motion new political, cultural, and gendered sensibilities and modalities of mobilization. By forging new modes of political engagement and discursive spaces, Feb20 liberated multiple possibilities for the co-imbrication of sex, gender, culture, and politics. The chapter examines these inaugurations by studying embodied discursive, performative, and artistic spaces initiated or expanded by Feb20 as forms of aesthetic citizenship. At the peak of the Arab uprisings, feminist sensibilities took a sexual turn on the protest scene and in multiple artistic and performative spaces, paving the way for new types of publics and claims.
