Watch Video of Rouzbeh Akhbari : Prelude

 

On June 27, Rouzbeh Akhbari invited a group of interested artists and activists to join him at Les Abattoir de Casablanca to discuss the politics of immolation and their siginifance in generating major uprisings in the Arab and Iranian cultures. Prior to his casual conversation, Prelude was performed. He invited the group to take a closer look at the burning flesh and consider the event in the specific context of the decaing, abondend former French operated slaughter house, in the heart of a nation heavily impacted by years of foreign interventions.

 

This was made possible by the generous support of Rachid Kalmni and Mohamed Rahmo.

Buddhist temple, Ourzazate

Buddhist temple, Ourzazate

In this subtle intervention, Ash Moniz collected a wooden piece of a Buddhist temple that was demolished by the Chinese government in southern China, transported it across the world, and fastened it onto a fake Buddhist temple in Ourzazate, that was build as a set for the movie Kundun.
