Algeria (extract of perfumes), 7 - 17.09.2017
onsdag 13. september kl. 15:00 på Khartoum Contemporary Art Center og fem andre tidspunkter
During Algeria (extract of perfumes), we invite you to have a peek into Algerian history and its multiple narratives that radiate beyond borders, beyond nations, beyond ethnicity and beyond language.
We invite you to listen to poetry, to dance, to chant, to watch, learn and deconstruct with us «extract of perfumes» or a metamorphic space where the intimate regenerate the universal, where time is obsolete, where the poetical stretches the political, where the individual reminiscence give strength to the collective memory.
Algeria (extract of perfumes) is a space for sharing, a space for discussion, a space for free spirits, a space for everyone.
Opening the program, Khartoum Contemporary Art Center is proudly showing for the first time an original gouache painting by the iconic female Algerian artist Baya, alongside several contemporary artists having a link – direct or remote – to Algeria. Cinemateket will follow the path by showing several movies by René Vautier, never shown in Norway before and some subtitled for the first time into English.
René Vautier was the first French anti-colonialist filmmaker and we are so honoured to be able to show his movies.
Our dear local Café Provence will host poetry readings and “The Dream That Kicks” will finish the dance by showing experimental film/video based artists.
