Opening: Saturday  October 1 - 18.00-21.00


By initiating a series of discursive and perceptual systems in which fresh hypotheses of the civic can be articulated, presented, and debated, Locus Agonistes aims to participate in the dynamic, lively, and complex debates of contemporary critical cultures in Arab societies and localities adjacent to them in Europe. The project is inspired by the momentous historical forces and the emancipatory logics that are currently reshaping debates on civic identities, political subjectivities, cultural strategies, and artistic practices in Arab societies; and conceived as a response to the various scenarios of rupture between antagonistic political camps, and civic critical cultures. Participating artists include Adel Abdessemed, Saâdane Afif, Doa Aly, Allora & Calzadilla, Tarek Atoui, Stan Douglas, Radhouane El Meddeb, Mounir Fatmi, Mona Hatoum, Bouchra Khalili, Sandra Madi, Basim Magdy, Rima Maroun, Selma & Sofiane Ouissi, Tino Sehgal and Jalal Toufic. Meeting Points 6; Locus Agonistes – Practices and Logics of the Civic is a multidisciplinary event organized in collaboration with Young Arab Theatre Fund and KVS. Opening night 01.10.2011 – 18.00 – 21.00
