About Kader Attia

French-Algerian artist Kader Attia spent half of his time growing up in Algeria, and has taken these experiences as the basis for his on-going discovery of the ‘in-between’. His installations and video pieces deal heavily with the interactions between monotheism and polytheism, between tradition and modernity, and between Western and non-Western cultures from the post-colonial mire of Franz Fanon to now. He has exhibited profusely internationally, including recent group and solo exhibitions: Geo-graphics, A Map of Art Practices in Africa, Past and Present, BOZAR, Brussels, Belgium; THE BEAUTY OF DISTANCE: Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age, Biennale of Sydney, Sydney, Australia; Documenta 13, Kassel, Germany; and Performing Histories, Museum of Modern Art, New York.
