HUDUD (arab. "borders") is a transdisciplinary art and research programme curated by Driss Ksikes and Omar Berrada. Taking place in Tétouan, Berlin and Casablanca between November 2018 and June 2019, it brings together young artists, architects and social scientists based in Morocco. HUDUD focuses on mobility beyond mental and territorial borders. It is a collaboration between the Fatema Mernissi Chair (Mohammed V University and HEM, Rabat) and UNESCO, in partnership with ifa-Galerie Berlin and the Institute of Fine Arts in Tétouan.

Curators: Omar Berrada and Driss Ksikes / Mentors: Hassan Darsi and Saba Innab / Workshop leaders: Marion von Osten and Jonas Tinius 

Participants: Nassim Azarzar, Zineb Benjelloun, Meryem Jall, Loutfi Souidi, Yassine Yassni, Abdeslam Ziou Ziou

In Berlin, the project will involve closed working groups, open workshops with Berlin-based artists and scholars, and two public presentations:

What does it take to cross a border? - On borders, bodies and performance
February 21–24, 2019

ifa-Galerie Berlin hosts a four-day event programme addressing borders, bodies and movement. Through a series of performances, workshops and other contributions, a group of international artists will ask participants to examine—from the perspective of the body—how borders are constructed and negotiated through choreographic, corporeal, and sensory strategies, and how we can understand and unlearn them through physical experiences.

In the accompanying Education Lab, pupils from the Bettina-von-Arnim High School will explore borders within the context of the school.

With: deufert&plischke, Anne Juren, QUARTO (Anna af Sillén de Mesquita and Leandro Zappala) and Farah Saleh. Education Lab: Gregor Kasper, Rosanna Lovell, Moritz Scheuermann, Jorinde Splettstößer

Curated by Sandra Noeth and Annika Niemann. Assistance: Vera Laube

The project is funded by the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb).


March 1–16, 2019

Resonances is a space for research and encounter accompanying each exhibition of the Untie to Tie programme. Corresponding with each respective chapter of Movement.Bewegung, the platform brings together voices, thoughts and words, connecting and collaborating with initiatives and people who have inspired and contributed to the Untie to Tie programme.

Resonances also serves as a reflection on the processes behind the visible forms of exhibition making, functioning as a place for dialogue and encounter and a space for collective thinking. 

In March 2019, Resonances will take over the gallery space for two weeks in the form of an open research installation and public programme. Guests are invited to discuss, activate and share their different approaches, modes of knowledge production and practices, and we invite visitors to actively engage in these discourses.
