Hamza Halloubi

Hamza Halloubi (1982, Morrocco) studied visual art at La Cambre in Brussels and HISK in Ghent, Belgium. In clear and concise language, Hamza Halloubi develops narratives that unfold in a sphere that balances between documentary and fiction. He approaches history in a poetic manner involving recurrent themes such as reading, memory and exile. These narratives, situated somewhere between the personal and the collective, run parallel to the official version of history but question it at the same time. Halloubi has been resident at the JCVA in Jerusalem and at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. He has presented his work at amongst others the Museum De Pont, Tilburg; BOZAR-Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels; EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam; S.M.A.K., Ghent; Marrakech Biennale; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
