The installation Khadija revolved around a short science fiction film inspired by elements of the French-Moroccan artist Mounir Ayache’s family history as well as by events in the MENA region. The work drew on science fiction aesthetics as a way of transposing current issues into another space and time, thus opening up new perspectives on the present.
