Both from a Western and a North-African perspective, Maroufi and Vogels will talk about their experiences working as artists in Morocco, and the implications this had on their work, presented through binaries such as public-private, present-past, inside-outside and virtual-real. After a series of short presentations, the artists will engage in conversation with Alena Alexandrova.
