Jamsa — ⵜⴰⴼⵓⵙⵜ

Saturday 13 May 2023

In Arabic, Jamsa (خمسة), or Tafust (ⵜⴰⴼⵓⵙⵜ) in Amazigh, refers to the Hand of Fatima: a symbol of protection and defence. Under this banner and to celebrate the Night of the Museums, Ikram Bouloum will perform her music in the Museum's Atrium — the heart of MACBA —, to be followed with a DJ set by Pasaporteman, one of the monikers of Baba Sy, co-founder of the Barcelona collective Jokkoo. A constellation of sounds from the African diaspora in dialogue with Bouchra Khalili’s exhibition, whose films and video installations weave together histories of postcolonial liberation and solidarity.
