Narimane Mari's "Le Fort des Fous" at documenta twice a day, at 11 am and 2 pm! Come and see!
"The Ballhaus hosts a new film installation by Narimane Mari, Le fort des fous (2017), during documenta 14. Departing from material records of the early colonial “scientific expeditions” and “taming campaigns” led by the French colonizers in North Africa, the story follows a community of young nomads and wanderers as they form an imagined utopian society. Reenactments, improvisations, and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island, and the Prosfygika community in Athens inform this work as instances of alternative temporality and autonomous space."
