Mohssin Harraki

Artist

Mohssin Harraki works with drawing, video, installation, photography and performance as a means of questioning strong social and political issues. The artist questions both cultural constructions, as well as the post-colonial consequences and collective imaginaries. He is interested in topics such as genealogy, the transmission of power, and the formation of collective consciousness. The artist generally proceeds through dialogue, whether with his peers, artists, or with people he meets in the street, as during his « Jeûne » intervention in 2011 in Toulon. In his installations, he also explores the themes of books and writing, which he diverts from their traditional uses. Overall, all of the artist’s projects aim to explore the mechanisms of cultural construction and the constitution of collective memory and imagination.
