Interviews

   Since 2012 and thanks to the support of different funding institutions the NACMM team has conducted a series of video interviews with artists, curators, researchers and A.I.Rs coordinators from Morocco, Algeria and Egypt. The interviews presented here are aiming at shaping an archive of the different infrastructures that conform the contemporary art scenes of North Africa. The interviews are heterogeneous in the sense that not only include the thoughts, worries and hopes of different A.I.R coordinators but also engage in the current debates on the development of contemporary creative and research practices in North Africa.

The aim of this archive is to give you the tools to have a deeper insight into topics related to hospitality, cultural exchange and mobility while at the same time developing a better understanding of the socio-cultural realities of North Africa.
