School of Casablanca

A dérive through Casablanca, history and minds. A public programme by Bik van der Pol in two parts, November 2021, and June 2022.

Throughout November, meetings, discussions, lunchess and dérives will be taking place in Casablanca with various cultural actors, such as Bert Flint, Mamma Group, Mohamed Rachdi, Kenza Sefrioui, Sabrina Kamili, Florence Darsi, Maud Houssais, Fatima-Zahra Lakrissa, Maria Karim, Mohamed Jibril, Mehdi Azdem.
In June 2022, as an extension of their artistic practice focused on encounter and collaboration, BIk Van der Pol invites Fatima Mazmouz to embody Casablanca mon amour- Résistants, 2014-2018.

The School of Casablanca is a collaborative project that takes as its starting point the legacy of the Casablanca Art School and its innovative pedagogical methods and exhibition strategies in 1960s Morocco.

KW Institute for Contemporary Art and Sharjah Art Foundation, in collaboration with Goethe-Institut Marokko and ThinkArt, initiate a collaborative venture 2020–2022/23 revolving around the approach of Casablanca Art School—a school that developed innovative education and exhibition strategies in 1960s Morocco. During a residency in Casablanca between 2021–2022/23, artists will conduct research, produce new work, and create a public program focused on the subject(s) addressed in their research.
With Céline Condorelli, Fatima-Zahra Lakrissa, Marion von Osten †, Manuel Raeder, Bik Van der Pol, and Abdeslam Ziou Ziou.
