Bouchra Khalili’s practice across media articulates language, subjectivity, orality and geographical explorations. “She oft en retools the aesthetic strategies of documentary to focus on historical speculation and the representation of subjects rendered invisible by the nation-state.”* For her contribution, the artist will raise the question of the conditions for a “radical citizenship” inviting us to rethink beyond the categories often used to defi ne belonging within the nationstate.
Bouchra Khalili lives and works in Berlin. She is a professor of Contemporary Art at Oslo National Art Academy. She recently completed the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship at Harvard University, MA (US) and is currently nominated for Guggenheim’s Hugo Boss Prize and the Artes Mundi Prize. Her work has been on view in numerous institutions and biennials around the world: Recent exhibitions include documenta 14, Athens and Kassel (DE) (2017), Blackboard, solo exhibition at the Jeu de Paume (2018), The Mapping Journey Project, solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY (US) (2016), Foreign Office, solo exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2015), and Garden Conversation, solo exhibition at MACBA, Barcelona (ES) (2015).
