Starting with a re-examination of satire in terms of its relation to power andculture, this chapter then examines the impact of the Arab Spring on the workingsof satire in rap music videos in Morocco and Tunisia. The study of a largenumber of rap videos produced during and after the 2011 uprising has shownthat substantial change in the rap text and its visual support has occurred, makingsatire more transgressive, more topical, and more critical of the political andsocial order. These forms of intermedial satire has been energized and shifted toa position of dominance, giving voice to the hopes of all the community – andto its fears as well, casting, at times, a shadow over the accomplished change.
