KIBRIT

WEB MANAGEMENT, GRAPHIC COMUNICATION, PHOTOGRAPHY

In February 2017 Kibrit was born, funded by South MedCV and Anna Lindh Foundation. Since then I have been collaborating with the partners, mainly designing and programming Kibrit's website, as well as updating the content during the year.

I have also entrusted various graphic and production tasks related to the presentation of Kibrit project in Swab Fair. It has been a pleasure to document with photos the partners meetings, in Algiers on Febraury and a couple of times here in Barcelona.

Work it out with Yvon Langue graphic designer, and the programm coordinators Pau Catà and Francesca Masoero. In collaboration with the Partners: Le18, Maison de l'Image, L'atelier de l'Observatoire, Cercca, Jiser, Rhizome, Ramallah Municipality.

PLATFORM HARAKAT

WEB MANAGEMENT, GRAPHIC COMUNICATION, PHOTOGRAPHY

Platform Harakat action: Beyond Qafila Thania is developed in Kibrit's frame. That’s how it came to me the opportunity to design, programm and manage the Platform website.
In October the Platform was presented in Swab Art Fair and along with Pau Catà we worked on the graphic communication of both, Harakat Platform and Kibrit, designing the posters.
Also we were working out the Projects presentation that are part of the Platform. We designed and produced the stand that was the umbrella of both projects within the Focus Mediterranean's frame in Swab.

PHOTOS SWAB ART FAIR - SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER 2017

KIBRIT and Platform HARAKAT were part of FOCUS MEDITERRANIA at SWAB Barcelona International Art Fair 2017.
FOCUS MEDITERRANIA, curated by Xavier de Luca, included artistic projects from Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Palestine and Catalonia, offering an in-depth approximation into the cultural contexts of the Euro-Mediterranean region.
During the fair, we were presenting the projects developed by each KIBRIT partner, with a special focus on Platform Harakat, a project reflecting upon the traditions and contradictions of travelling and its multiple meanings weaved in the Mediterranean, Sahel and West African regions, developed by CeRCCa together with a group of artists, writers and curators and conceived as a step beyond the NACMM (North Africa Cultural Mobility Map).

ABOUT PLATFORM HARAKAT

Named after the word movements in Arabic, Platform HARAKAT embodies the inherent contradictions of travelling: movements occur despite and because of a paradox simultaneously promoting, impeding, and forcing mobility.
Adopting a cross-disciplinary perspective, Platform HARAKAT proposes to retrace the past and contemporary mobility of knowledge(s), bodies and practices focusing in the Mediterranean, the Sahel, and West Africa regions. In order to do so, Platform HARAKAT gathers a selection of resources branched in three different categories: Knowledges, Tools, and Actions. With the intention to interrelate these resources and to go a step beyond the archival impulse, we propose also a series of curated dialogues, which are gathered within conceptual Cartographies.
The purpose of Platform HARAKAT is to reflect upon different approximations to the journey, the heritage of its traditions and its erasures. We want to set in motion concepts and practices derived from mobility and its shadows, to document forgotten histories and invisible stories, to stress the important connections that shape these territories, while providing a space for critical reflection and action.
