Bouchra Khalili. Blackboard
Catalogue of the exhibition

This catalogue is published in conjunction with Bouchra Khalili’s exhibition at the Jeu de Paume, "Blackboard", which brings together a wide selection of works produced since 2008.

Combining subjectivity, collective history and the transmission of forgotten utopias, the project proposes a meditation on the emancipatory power of words, when they are underpinned by members of minorities often confined to the sidelines of visibility.

Blackboard is thus conceived as a space where the protagonists in the artist’s works and spectators can meet, rekindling Pier Paolo Pasolini’s proposed conception of the work of art as civic poetry.
