Cité internationale des Arts de Paris – exhibition May 16 – July 30

Under the police station of Emilia Goudal and Nataia Petrein-Bachelez.

These voices that besieg me…, whose title borrows the words of Assia Djebar, brings together a selection of works, images and archives produced in connection with the decolonization movement and the feminist struggles that have developed since Algeria – as well as echoes, fragments and voices of emancipations still in progress.

Algeria is therefore not understood as an area delimited by its national borders, but as an epistemological and critical engine capable of revealing the echoes that vibrate at the heart of our visual history.

The exhibition is organized in four chapters and brings together projects by Algerian, French and French artists – from France and Guadeloupe – from Palestinian, Serbian, Senegalese, Lebanese, Ecuadorian and American artists – many of them from the International Cité. From tutelary figures of the Djamila(s), with multiple faces, to the resurgence of Frantz Fanon and to the convergence of transnational solidarity to the echoes of the resistance from yesterday to today, These voices that besiege me … propose to the public to cross a constellation of paintings, sculptures, installations, videos, films, posters and archives.

These voices that besieges me… takes place at the Cité Internationale des Arts, in connection with Arab Presences. Modern art and decolonization. Paris 1908-1988, presented at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, under the direction of Odile Burluraux and Curating. Participating in concert at a particular moment of decolonization of modern and contemporary art, these voices that besiege me… are intended to be a platform of subjectivities linked to African independence and the decolonization of Algerian territory, inexorably mixed with the polyphony of feminist struggles.
