Yto Barrada in conversation with Laura Barlow

Join Yto Barrada and exhibition curator Laura Barlow for a discussion about the artist's threads of thinking and the presence of the parallel but distinct lives of beings in the exhibition, including Barrada’s mother Mounira Bouzid, ethnologist and anthropologist Thérèse Rivière, Lebanese modernist Saloua Raouda Choucair, a palm tree, and a dinosaur skeleton.

These characters are all part of Barrada’s imagined and historical socio-political narratives that address ideas of decomposition and revival related to the histories of political and colonial nation building, post-independence strategies of resistance, and their distinct formal realities.
