The Invisible Scent of History
The Invisible Scent of History is a screening programme of video works originally conceived as part of the project Visible/Invisible, Art & Politics. Presented at the Media Lounge in collaboration with the 104th International College Art Association Conference, it takes place from 3–6 February 2016 in Washington DC. The programme is co-curated by interdisciplinary artist and visiting faculty at CalArts, California, Jenny Marketou, and curator, writer, co-director of Bureauphi Art Projects, Berta Sichel. Consultants on the project include curator/writer Yasmina Reggad and artist/curator Ava Ansari.
Selected videos present lost and disputed histories that overlap with personal narratives, addressing how identity and politics of representation is organized, appropriated, and disseminated through moving image and media networks. Participating artists include: Doa Aly, Negar Behbahani, Adel Abidin, Neïl Beloufa, Taysir Batniji, Atef Berredjem, Ismaïl Bahri, Fayçal Baghriche, Amir Kabriri, ONE-, Katia Kameli, Ymane Fakhir, Larissa Sansour, Zeinab Shahidi Marnani, Zaher Omreen, Zineb Sedira, Amil Yatziv, and Azza El Hassan.
We are pleased to offer a condensed version of this programme for the Ibraaz channel, which includes Katia Kameli's Untitled, Atef Berredjem's Living with the Aliens, Neïl Beloufa's Untitled, Taysir Batniji's Ma Mere, David at Moi, and Negar Behbahani's Irreversable.
