For this new edition of the summer’s lab, Le Cube – independent art room is pleased to invite the artist Mouhcine Rahaoui for a one-month research and production residency.
Mouhcine Rahaoui’s work finds its roots in the Jerrada region, where he grew up. His projects aspire to be witnesses of the history of this city and its inhabitants whose principal economic activity has been based on the exploitation of coal mines for a long time.
Even though the mines have been officially closed, they continue to be exploited clandestinely and determine the economic, sanitary and historical destiny of several workers and their families.
During this summer’s lab, which takes place at the same time as Imane Djamil’s residency and then Loutfi Souidi’s residency, Mouhcine Rahaoui will be provided with time and space to work and to develop new techniques or research.
Since the residency neither requires the production of artworks nor the organization of an exhibition, the artists are encouraged to engage in experimental work and to open new possibilities for their projects.
