A work by Driss Ouadahi features in The One and the Other, an exhibition by Kader Attia and Jacque Lebel, on view at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France from 16 February until 13 May, 2018.
The One and the Other is not an exhibition but a research laboratory. It is the result of an exchange of Attia and Lebel'sperspectives, of a partnership underpinned by their friendship. The artists present a selection of work linked to the major questions of our civilization, which are approached principally through two installations. The first addresses the fabrication in and by the dominant media of the absolute 'Other', a violent and warlike entity that never fails to inspire fear: the Satan, the Savage, the Terrorist. The second concerns the persistence throughout history of humiliation, rape and torture in imperialist war crimes.
