After an interruption caused by the global pandemic, the International Biennale of Casablanca announce the gradual resumption of its curatorial programme. The fifth edition remains under the artistic direction of Christine Eyene, assisted by Selma Naguib (Morocco), Patrick Nzazi Kiama (Democratic Republic of Congo / France) and Juste Constant Onana Amougui (Cameroon). Also joining the organising team is Jacques-Antoine Gannat (Morocco) who will develop the biennale’s new international partnerships.
The biennale’s activities resumed end of March with a research trip by Austrian artist Oliver Ressler who is creating a new film commissioned in collaboration with Phileas – A Fund for Contemporary Art. Current preparations for the new incubation programme starting in July include a participatory research workshop as part of Berlin-based artist Ali El Darsa’s new commission, an art community meeting in Casablanca, and residencies at IFITRY in the Essaouira region.
Entitled The Words Create Images, the 5th International Biennale of Casablanca will now take place in two stages, with exhibitions and events from 17 November to 17 December 2022 and from 9 February to 11 March 2023.
