Bouchra Khalili: Foreign Office

Lecture21 May 2015, 19:00

Bouchra Khalili is a Berlin-based Moroccan-French artist. Born in Casablanca, she later studied Film at Sorbonne Nouvelle and Visual Art at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts de Paris-Cergy.

Through language, subjectivity, orality, and transitional territories, Khalili's work (film, video, installation, photography and prints) focuses on historical speculation and the representation of subjects rendered invisible by the nation-state, to investigate strategies and discourses of resistance as elaborated and narrated from the perspective of political minorities.

Khalili's work has been internationally exhibited, as at "Here & Elsewhere", New Museum (New York, 2014) ; "Positions", Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, 2014) ; "The Encyclopedic Palace", 55th Venice Biennale (2013) ; "Cross-Border", ZKM, Karlsruhe (2013); "Salon Der Angst", Kunsthalle Wien (2013); "La Triennale", Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2012) ; The 18th Biennale of Sydney (2012); << Mapping Subjectivity >> at MoMA (New York, 2011); The 10th Sharjah Biennial (2011); among others. Recent solo exhibitions include: "Foreign Office" at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2015) ; "Garden Conversation" at Macba, Barcelona (2015) ; "Speeches - Chapter 3: Living Labour" at PAMM, Miami (2013) ; "The Opposite of the Voice-Over", Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto (2013) ; "Wet Feet and More" at DAAD Galerie, Berlin, (2013). Khalili is also the recipient of numerous grants and awards, as such as: "Abraaj Group Art Prize, 2014"; "Sam Art Prize 2014", Sam Art Foundation, Paris ; "DAAD-Artist in Berlin" (2012) ; Vera List Center for Art and Politics Fellowship (The New School, New York, 2011-2013) ; Villa Médicis Hors les Murs (2010).

"Foreign Office" combines a digital film, a series of photographs and a silkscreen print. Produced in Algier in Fall 2014 and currently on view at Khalili's solo show at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, this new body of works investigates the period during which Algiers - between 1962 and 1972 - became the "capital of revolutionaries", hosting delegations of movements of liberation from Africa, Asia and the Americas. Taking as a starting point this forgotten part of post-independent Algeria, "Foreign Office" invites to reflect on the articulations between history, historiography and oral history, their transmission, and the status of forgotten utopias. For this lecture, Bouchra Khalili will introduce the project as well as the method she developed to conduct it.
