Project: Bab Sebta 
Category: Visual Arts 
Organisation: Randa Maroufi     
Country: Morocco 

Details:

The young multimedia artist Randa Maroufi is making Sebta - one of the Spanish enclaves  in  Morocco  - the location for an experimental video work that seeks to question the limitations of representation. It is the unique trade activities that are being made subject of this work in order to allow viewers to revel for some moments in the wonderous atmosphere of this city. Though on Moroccan soil, Sebta is Spanish territory and different rules apply, such as tax exemption of certain goods which get carried on foot from the city to towns across the border where they are sold at a discount. The video follows protagonist embroiled in such activities and quietly studies what they represent and where they defy all representation.
