Bouchra Khalili book launch at the New Museum

For the US premiere of Bouchra Khalili’s The Tempest Society (2017) the artist will discuss her film and new artist book by the same title with curator and writer Omar Berrada. Commissioned by documenta 14 (Athens), The Tempest Society considers the forgotten heritage of Al-Assifa (“The Tempest” in Arabic), an agitprop theater comprising North African immigrant workers and French students that was active in Paris from 1972 to 1978, and explores its relevance to present day economic and humanitarian struggles.
