IF YOU’RE SO SMART, WHY AIN’T YOU RICH? – On The Economics Of Knowledge

l'École Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech, Marrakech, Morocco
28 Feb 2014 - 22 Mar 2014

Initiated by SAVVY Contemporary and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), the research and exhibition project Giving Contours To Shadows embarks with its first satellite project If You’re So Smart, Why Ain’t You Rich? in the framework of the 5th Marrakech Biennale.

The exhibition brings together twelve international artists working primarily with sound installations that thematize the tug of war between the cognitive, intellectual and the economic / financial capital. If You’re So Smart, Why Ain’t You Rich? explores how sound becomes haptic, tactile and textural in arts, society, politics and economy. The project is curated by Dr. Bonaventure Ndikung and Pauline Doutreluingne, and hosted by ESAV Marrakech (l’École Supérieure des Arts Visuels de Marrakech).

Artists: Gilles Aubry Earpolitics (CH) & Zouheir Atbane (MA), Younes Baba-ali (MA), Tal Isaac Hadad (FR), Anne Duk Hee Jordan (DE), Brandon LaBelle (US), Marco Montiel-Soto (VEN), Emeka Ogboh (NG), Lukas Truniger (CH) & Ali Tnani (TN), Paolo Bottarelli (IT), and Evgenija Wassilew (FR/DE)


Opening: 28 February 2014, 6 -9pm
