The place of design and fashion in North Africa

@ Tarek Atrissi, KafLab Foundation

Ever since the time of Herodotus, the history of North Africa has also been the history of its imaginary. Beyond its geographical, religious or political borders, this region has been created and recreated in forms, images, words and sounds that are as different from one another as those of Ingres, Le Corbusier, Dizzie Gillespie and Yves Saint-Laurent, but also as different as those of Ibn Battuta, Umm Kulthum or Abdellatif Kechiche. The profound changes that have recently taken place in the streets and political regimes of the region’s three new democratic States have opened up a whole new field for creativity, but also for the development of specific projects, for the artists and designers of the Maghreb. At a time when a whole region is reinventing itself, in what way can art, but above all design, contribute towards our questioning of these imaginaries and our discovering new places for the imagination of its creators and citizens?

This is my introduction to the second Next Future Africa and Latin America Observatory, a one-day seminar dedicated to “The place of design and fashion in North Africa.” that I have the honour and pleasure in coordinating.

Taking place on May 12th at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, this seminar will have six speakers who’ll come from Egypt, Germany, Lebanon, Mozambique, Brazil and Portugal to present their work and research on this region of the world, currently under a massive redesign.

  1. , it is not always easy and some of it is downright hard to do, but God blesses us in our obedience to His word and His calling on us as wives. So you go girl! Love it! Blessings to you and your hubby! Kate

    They could be an excellent experience provided that
    you have the ability to open your own self
    to the assistance and message you are actually obtaining in the course
    of your spiritual tool readings, as well as to look for the much deeper metaphysical meaning hidden within.

    Look at my web site – new.kaloianovo.org (Karri)

  4. If you choose to get into a chat room in order to get access to different kinds of spiritual readings supplied by very most qualified psychics as well
    as take pleasure in practical advice from all knowledgeable participants who have several
    years of working in this arena, you could gain a lot coming from those free metaphysical readings via the website.

  5. Congratulations, Holly and Paul! I am crying with tears of joy as I type this (big surprise, when I am NOT crying?). I am so genuinely happy that God has gifted you with this wonderful blessing. You are wonderful as a pair, but how much more joy will abound now that you are three! My friends, I am just so happy for you.

    If you can’t keep up the pace your routine will end up being sidelined too often and
    you won’t achieve your goals. An easy solution to
    this problem is to maintain a healthy weight and cut back on sugar and refined
    carbohydrates. Fish oil pills are an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty
    acids which have been attributed to maintaining a healthy heart
    and vascular health.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  12. Articles like these put the consumer in the driver seat-very important.

    There are no other products on the market with as many nutrients, vitamins and minerals, but the Shakeology drink is extremely expensive and for the price, there are plenty of alternatives.
    Protein is essential nutrition that not only helps rebuild and strengthen muscle but supplies the body with the
    energy that it needs. Yet there are plenty of men out there with heaps of energy and the willingness and
    ability to handle us “alphas”.

  21. I precisely wished to say thanks once more. I’m not certain the things that I might have implemented in the absence of the type of tricks shared by you on that subject matter. It was before a hard problem in my position, however , seeing this well-written style you solved that took me to cry with fulfillment. Now i’m grateful for the support and as well , hope you recognize what a great job you happen to be undertaking training most people with the aid of a blog. Probably you’ve never come across all of us.
