In collaboration with Mirjam Linschooten
Workshop

“Besieged as we are by the profusion of images that characterize our present, we might be tempted to close our eyes – only to realize that pictures have always been swarming behind our eyelids.”
— Massimiliano Gioni, Il Palazzo Enciclopedico =: The Encyclopedic Palace: Biennale Arte 2013

A 4-week workshop with students from the National Institute of Architecture and the School of Fine Arts in Tétouan, Morocco. By accessing the ‘internal archives’ of the students, we constructed a database of images that challenged the official story told by the Ethnographic Museum of Tétouan with alternative narratives.
