During this conference at the Goethe-Institut of Rabat, that takes place in the framework of the project travelling narratives, Yvette Mutumba talks about her practices which are witness of her attachment to promoting the plurality of contemporary creation.
Through a selection of her recent projects, she presents her approach and her methods that aim at transferring and diffusing, in an accessible way, complex and marginalized stories and debates.
This event is also the opportunity to contemplate the manner in which Yvette Mutumba makes parallel narratives emerge within a hegemonic cultural discourse. She will elaborate on this topic the following morning, in a roundtable, taking place at Le Cube -independent art room.
Yvette Mutumba (Berlin) is an art historian, curator and journalist specialized in contemporary arts (Contemporary and, ifa).
This meeting is organized in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Marokko.
It falls in the framework of travelling narratives, a regional program of art and research that aims at encouraging interactions between cultural operators in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania and Libya.
Through the organization of a cycle of residencies, exhibitions, screenings, meetings, workshops and conferences, this project strives to cross and connect micro-stories from North Africa in order to discover and disseminate endogenous stories of these territories and to collectively imagine new social and cultural utopias from these alternative narratives.
Travelling narratives is supported by AFAC – The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, the Goethe-Institut Marokko, the Institut Français du Maroc, the Centre Jacques Berque and the Ministry of Culture and Communication in Morocco. The program is carried out in partnership with Townhouse, مؤسسة ورق للفنون – WaraQ art foundation and the cultural space Diadie Tabara Camara.
