Haus der Kunst inaugurates a new program of focused one gallery exhibitions that explore recent developments amongst a generation emerging international artists. The goal of the Capsule Exhibition series is to engage audiences in the production of new works by artists at critical points of artistic breakthrough in their careers. Launching the series in 2014, are two artists who explore concepts of narrative, time, space, and the production of social identity.
Through his multimedia works, the French-Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa (born 1978) investigates strategies of subjectivation and representation that reside in the social, cultural, and economical margins of society. His works deal with value systems and how these impact their protagonists’ identities and self-perceptions.
With the kind support of Bureau des arts plastiques / Institut français and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication

Mohamed Bourouissa presents selected videos and discusses the contextual background of his work. The central theme of the French-Algerian artist, and thus the unifying element of all his films is the exploration of social, economic, and cultural values, as well as social identity constructs and their conflicts with each other.
