Conversation between Salma Amzian (researcher and activist), Ali el Aziz (actor), Adrian Schindler (artist) and Anna Manubens (curator).
Drawing on a collection of illustrated historical documents, the conversation will examine the orientalist and colonial imaginary that Spain has forged about the “other Moroccan” over the last century and a half and the visible and invisible forms with which it survives today. Supported by the works of Wendelien van Oldenborgh and the performance Spectres of Morocco (2020) by Adrian Schindler, the group will reflect on the plurality of perspectives, on the potential and the contradictions of decolonial artistic strategies that focus on the different places of enunciation and the mechanisms of power inherent to representation.
Activity at Fabra i Coats: Art Factory, in the Polivalent 2 room, linked to the exhibition tone tongue mouth, a retrospective of Wendelien van Oldenborgh, curated by Anna Manubens and held at the Contemporary Art Centre until 17 February. Limited places. To register, please email email@example.com
