Through a conversation with the artist, the Director of MACBA Bartomeu Marí presents Bouchra Khalili’s Garden Conversation (2014, HD video, 16 min), which will be exhibited in the Museum galleries from 16 April to 28 June.

In her work (video, mixed media installations, photography and prints), Bouchra Khalili combines a conceptual approach with a documentary practice to explore issues of clandestine existences and political minorities. She articulates language, subjectivity, discourse and speech, transitional territories and transit zones, investigating the interrelation between contemporary migrations and colonial history, physical and imaginary geography.

To reconstruct the disorder of a possible city. To use the model, not as an element in a project, but as the representation of something that already exists.
