Results of the call for artistic residency exchanges between Marrakech and Barcelona

On February 15, 2024, the jury composed of two members from LE 18: Laila Hida, founder, and Francesca Masoero, curator of the Qanat program; two members from AC/E: Marta Rincón, head of visual arts, architecture, and design, and Anael García, residency manager; two members from Jiser: Xavier de Luca, founder, and Houari Bouchenak, coordinator; and two members from Hangar: Anna Manubens, director of Hangar, and Veronica Valentini, responsible for international residency and research programs, selected Aicha Josefa Trinidad Gououi to undertake a residency at Le 18, where she will develop her project قصص (Qisas, Tales) over two months.

Her project revolves around her thesis, which compiles oral stories and life experiences to craft short stories serving as chapters for her final doctoral thesis. Thus, it will be an academic thesis composed through narratives often regarded as “minor knowledges.” Using storytelling as a method not only democratizes writing but also challenges traditional academic thesis norms. To frame the emerging themes, Aicha will initially highlight the starting point: the belief in belonging to what she terms the Brotherhood Generation. This cohort comprises young Maghrebis whose work is steeped in anti-colonialism, feminism, and queer advocacy from North African contexts. It also includes daughters of the North African and Spanish diaspora who confront structural racism and embrace North African diasporic culture from a transnational perspective.

From Hangar, we extend our best wishes to Aicha Josefa Trinidad Gououi for her residency in Marrakech.
