حديث أو مغزل


H’dith o Mghezel describes a traditional form of communication over shared iterative practices. It is a heritage of communal repetition and construction paired with discourse. In the aftermath of the earthquakes that devastated communities across Morocco in 2023, the collective exhibition at Malhoun, gathers artisans, artists, architects, and designers to reflect upon the act of communal reconstruction. This is the first stage of a year-long exhibition format where members and guests showcase their productions and thoughts by way of a continuum. Overlapping organically, artworks and propositions will come and go following the conversations, intuitions, and practical needs of participants.
The restoration works of the Malhoun building in Gueliz are ongoing throughout the year. It is a gestural attempt to reveal the collective memory accumulated over the years and the various scars of its occupation. We see the ongoing reconstruction of that architectonics as part of the exhibition.
