1-54 Forum Paris

7 - 10 April 2022 (09/04/2022)

Opening Remarks / A Memento to Marrakech (11:00 am – 11:15 am CET)

Forum Curator Dr Omar Kholeif introduces 1-54 Forum Paris.

Enter the Frame with Hassan Hajjaj (Video Address and Conversation, 11:15 am – 11:45 am CET)

1-54 Forum begins by reflecting on the complex cultural constellations of Marrakech, Morocco, a site where the 1-54 Forum and Fair has for the second time been moved due to the evolving contours of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Audiences are invited to Enter the Frame of the Day in a special trans-border conversation with the polymath, Hassan Hajjaj. An Andy Warhol for the 21st Century, artist Hajjaj demystifies Morocco’s cliches, immersing us into the heart of the city’s Medina and revealing new work in progress in a conversation with Forum Curator, Dr Kholeif.
