More Information

Bouchra Khalili is a Moroccan-French artist and the 2017–2018 David and Roberta Longie Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute. She lives and works in Berlin and Oslo and is shortlisted for the Guggenheim’s Hugo Boss Prize 2018 and for Artes Mundi 8. Working with film, video, installation, photography, and prints, Khaliliʼs work investigates strategies and discourses of resistance as elaborated, developed, and narrated by individuals—often members of political minorities. The Radcliffe Institute presents a solo exhibition featuring a selection of elements of Khalili’s work from "Foreign Office," consisting of a digital film of the same title, a group of photographs, and a silkscreen print, titled "The Archipelago." The exhibition’s combination of artistic elements suggests an alternative historiography of utopian movements—working in concert, they invite reflection on potential gestures of resistance for the present and the future.
