Biographical Text

Bouchra Khalili is a Moroccan-French artist. Born in Casablanca, she later graduated in Film & Media Studies at Sor

bonne Nouvelle and Visual Arts at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy. She lives and works in Berlin.

Encompassing film, video, installation, photography, printmaking, and publishing, Khalili’s practice explores imperial and colonial continuums as epitomized by contemporary forced illegal migrations and the politics of memory of anti-colonial struggles and international solidarity. Deeply informed by the legacy of post-independence avant-gardes and the vernacular traditions of her native Morocco, Khalili’s approach develops strategies of storytelling at the intersection of history and micro-narratives. Combining documentary and conceptual practices, she investigates questions of self-representation, autonomous agency, and forms of resistance of communities rendered invisible by the nation-state model.

Khaliliʼs work has been subject to many international solo exhibitions, including recently at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2019); Museum Folkwang (2018); Jeu de Paume National Gallery, Paris (2018); Secession, Vienna (2018); Wexner Center for the Arts (2017); MoMa, Museum of Modern Art, New York (2016); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2015); MACBA, Barcelona (2015); PAMM, Miami (2014-2013), among others.
