Lydia Ourahmane: «Barzakh»

Today: 11.00 AM - 5.00 PM

02 March 2021 - 16 May 2021

A ransom, an illicit border crossing, an exchange of nationality: Transactions of different sorts are often the conceptual starting point for Lydia Ourahmane’s (*1992) art. The results encompass video, sound, performance, sculpture, and installation, exploring the way histories of displacement and colonial oppression are inscribed upon bodies. For her first exhibition in Switzerland, the artist presents a newly commissioned work.

Curious visitors of all ages are welcome to its spectacular display spaces for thought-provoking exhibitions and events.
