Workshop on June 14 from 10am – 6pm
Working across video, installation, and painting, the Moroccan artist Hamza Halloubi approaches existentialist questions in a poetic and equivocal way. Exploring the relationship between the individual and the faculty of knowledge Halloubi aims at a representation of alternative ideas of identity and culture by disrupting the dogmas of what is defined and established in culture. He approaches history by involving recurrent themes such as reading, memory and exile often re-instating what is missing or non-producible. These narratives, situated somewhere between the personal and the collective, run parallel to the official version of history but question it at the same time.
