Bouchra Khalili is a Moroccan-French artist. Born in Casablanca, she later studied Film at Sorbonne Nouvelle and Visual Arts at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy. She lives and works in Berlin and Oslo. Working with film, video, installation, photography, and prints, Khaliliʼs practice articulates language, subjectivity, orality, and geographical explorations. Each of her projects investigates strategies and discourses of resistance as elaborated, developed, and narrated by individuals, often members of political minorities.
Among her affiliations: she is a Professor of Contemporary Art at The Oslo National Art Academy, and a founding member of La Cinémathèque de Tanger, an artist-run non-profit organization based in Tangiers, Morocco.
