From the vault

Bouchra Khalili

"My works are also meditation on potential futures. So the witnesses we are talking about, do not only bear witness to the past, they also bear witness to a potential future."

Through a practice that combines documentary, conceptual art, installation, and oral storytelling,  Bouchra Khalili explores questions of self-representation, political agency, and the resistance strategies of individuals and communities rendered invisible by the colonial, oppressive, and exclusionary dynamics of nation-states.  Who is a witness? Who tells the story? Who documents, archives, and transmits the accounts that reach us? These are the central questions that run through all of Khalili’s work. In this podcast, we talk to Bouchra Khalili about what it means to produce images and to approach film and documentary practice from new places and perspectives.
