Foreign Office - BOUCHRA KHALILI

19:00 h

Price: Free event

Within the framework of Barcelona Gallery Weekend’s first edition, ADN Galería presents the exhibition by Bouchra Khalili “Foreign Office”. The opening will take place on Thursday the 1st of October from 7pm.

“Foreign Office” (2015) comprises a digital film, series of photographs and silkscreen print. Produced in Algiers, this body of works investigates the decade (1962-1972) when the city was the “capital of revolutionaries”, hosting headquarters of liberation movements from Africa, Asia and the Americas. “Foreign Office” thus forms a combination of fragments suggesting an alternative historiography of utopias, aiming to reflect on the ideal of emancipation in the present-time, and potentially the future.
