MA Curatorial Practice presents leading Berlin-based French-Algerian artist Kader Attia, who will speak with MA Curatorial Practice's Director of Research Brian Kuan Wood about how social systems and institutions address historical wounds in an infinite process of repair. How can a Paris bar/club such as La Colonie, which Attia founded in 2016, also be a trans-cultural and intergenerational space for decolonializing knowledge?
