The Marrakech Symposium

At the end of the exhibition "Symbiosis of two worlds / Symbiose de deux Mondes", which was awarded as the "art event of the year" in Morocco, the Written Art Foundation presented the Marrakech Symposium. Cause for this exhibition was the centenary of the memorable "trip to Tunis", which resulted in a revolution in art and thus ushered the modern era. Under the title "Reflections of Art" well-known European and Arab experts, artists, politicians, scientists and collectors discussed the current state of cultural exchange between Europe and the Arab world.

So it were highly gifted artists of North Africa from Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, which came to Europe, while not abandoning their tradition and sign language. The most important among them include Farid Belkahia, born in Marrakech, or the slightly older artists Shafic Abboud, but also Mehdi Qotbi, Nja Mahdaoui, Rachid Koraïchi, El Houssaine Mimouni and many others.

 

From the initially tentative encounters with another culture resulted a painting without borders. The inspirations, duplication and transfer of design methodologies between European and Arab artists have led to an extraordinary variety and richness.

From the European side, we constrained this with works by Pierre Soulages, Pierre Alechinsky and Antoni Tàpies but also by well-known advocates of so-called postmodernism as Georg Baselitz, Gerhard Richter, Cy Twombly, Rebecca Horn and Mark Tobey.

Hence one can speak today at the beginning of the 21st century of a symbiosis of two worlds, which shows a perspective for our future together in mutual respect and sincere interest in cooperation. It is a beacon in the global context, that holds Europe and North Africa together.
