Marrakech Biennale 5: Where are we now?
WHERE ARE WE NOW?, the title of Marrakech Biennale 5, is an interrogation of place and time. If WHERE is a question of site, the context in which the Biennale takes place, NOW is an enquiry into its past, its present, and its future. The Biennale’s Visual & Sound Arts exhibition explores the relationship between the place of Marrakech and the now of the contemporary, contemporary art practice, and contemporary Morocco through artworks that reflect on the personal and collective, the historical and the fictional.
