Curated by Omar Berrada, 1-54 FORUM returns for its ninth edition in Marrakech between the 23 – 25 February 2018 at La Mamounia. In addition, FORUM will host two sessions at ESAV (L’École Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech) and LE 18, a multidisciplinary art space.

The 1-54 Marrakech FORUM programme Always Decolonise! will engage with the notion that decolonisation is not a historical event that belongs to the past. In the face of lingering coloniality, the programme will explore the idea that decolonisation is an everyday task, in constant need of re-actualisation. In a series of talks, panel discussions, screenings and performances, FORUM will foreground the need to decolonise knowledge production, to unlearn Eurocentrism, and to build new futures by re-membering the remaining fragments of folklorised pasts. FORUM will call upon the imagination of artists and cultural producers to help invent new modes of acting and thinking.


1-54 Marrakech is located at La Mamounia:
