This residency opens a space of research for Mohammed Laouli, as a part of travelling narratives, in order to deepen his research on the resurgence of colonial history in the cities of Rabat and Sale.
It is also an opportunity for the artist to initiate projects that he will develop during his residency at Les Ateliers Sauvages, in Algiers, and to meet the Algerian artist Hichem Merouche, currently in residency at Le Cube -independent art room.
This residency of Mohammed Laouli is part of travelling narratives, a regional program of art and research that aims at encouraging interactions between cultural agents in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania and Libya.
Traveling 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, Les Ateliers Sauvages, مؤسسة ورق للفنون – WaraQ art foundation and the cultural space Diadie Tabara Camara.
