Next week, I will host a machinima workshop with the egyptian artist Ahmed El Shaer at la compagnie, in the frame of the exhibition the antiAtlas of borders #2. This workshop will be conducted with teenagers from the streets and in partnership with non profit organizations who work with la compagnie on social and cultural action.
I am really glad to co-host this machinima workshop with Ahmed, as he is one of the few who host machinima workshops in the world! It will be the first time we meet since I showed “Under examination” inside the machinima exhibition I curated for Gamerz about Identity and otherness. It is also great because, we will do this workshop inside the exhibition of the antiAtlas, an other way to work on an experimental way on the themes of the antiAtlas: immigration, border crossing, border economy, border representations; while irecting movies with games to deal with these issues…
Really looking forward to it!
