Through a selection of her recent projects, she presents her approach and her methods that aim at transferring and diffusing, in an accessible way, complex and marginalized stories and debates. This event is also the opportunity to contemplate the manner in which Yvette Mutumba makes parallel narratives emerge within a hegemonic cultural discourse. She will elaborate on this topic the following morning, in a roundtable, taking place at Le Cube -independent art room.
This meeting is organized in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Marokko. Travelling Narratives is a regional program of art and research wishing to encourage interactions between cultural actors in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Mauritania and Libya. Through cycles of residencies, exhibitions, screenings, meetings, workshops and conferences, this project aims to cross and connect the micro-stories of North Africa in order to deploy endogenous stories of these territories and to imagine collectively new social and cultural utopias from these alternative narratives. Travelling Narratives is supported by AFAC – The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, the Goethe-Institut Marokko, the Institut Français du Maroc, the Jacques Berque Center and the Ministry of Culture and Communication of Morocco, and is produced in collaboration with Townhouse Gallery, مؤسسة ورق للفنون – WaraQ art foundation and the Cultural Space Diadie Tabara Camara.
