Morocco/ Badr El Hammami – through pictures

The work of France-based Moroccan artist Badr El Hammami is a poetical experiment on the notion of  border translated in a number of installations, texts, photographs, videos and performances that question the arbitrary concept of ‘being stranger’. Its social status as foreigner in France allows him a paradoxical reading of maps and territories. When looking at a map, Badr El Hammami does not see “juxtaposed countries or forms” but “a network of lines, a rhizomatic composition that connects all territories.”
