Bouchra Khalili @Kunsthaus Zürich
April 17, 2023
Discover Bouchra Khalili’s video Garden Conversation at the latest Kunsthaus Zürich exhibition Re-Orientations.
Garden Conversation takes as a departure point the meeting in Cairo in January 1959 at the Embassy of Morocco of Ernesto Guevara and the old exiled Moroccan hero of the Rif War (1921-1926), Abdelkrim Al Khattabi.
55 years after Guevara and Khattabi’s meeting, and nearly 3 years after the beginning of the Arab Spring, Khalili examines a hypothesis in the form of a poetic meditation : what would the ghosts of Guevara and Khattabi say to each other if they were to meet today?
Re-Orientations opens tomorrow at Kunsthaus Zurich. Don’t miss it!
