Since 2003, Bourouissa has been developing a multidisciplinary practice rooted in social reality, working primarily with representations of a contemporary urban environment.

Jeu de Paume
Instruments is the catalogue accompanying Ismaïl Bahri's exhibition of the same title at the Jeu de Paume. It is also his first monograph. Bahri's oeuvre, which dates back to the 2000s, is like a precise and sensitive record of events and experiments; its often mechanical kinetics are particularly evocative of the film process. His experiments are based on the tiny nuances and minute developments that occur when simple things are brought into contact with each other. They demand an acuteness of gaze that leads one to question the limits of perception and the visible.

At the heart of this book is a solo exhibition of the work of M'barek Bouhchichi in Rabat, and the artist's first attempt at directly confronting the wound of growing up black in Morocco. With contributions by an anthropologist, a filmmaker, and a writer from Africa, this volume puts recent transformations of Moroccan society into perspective. Beyond studying inequality and spatial segregation, what is at stake is the possibility of transfiguring the stigma of racism through art and research.
