Yto Barrada

Abstract

Why does the rich world have such an appetite for exotic objects such as prehistoric remains? Do they differentiate between authenticity and tradition? Yto Barrada’s (°1971, Paris/Tanger) photos, films and installations meditate on this duality in Moroccan history. Fossils, children’s games or the ethnographic museum are just a few of the themes that she connects in her work. At M she is presenting a selection of recent works along with her latest film Faux Départ, and the new installation Salon Géologique.status: publishe
