Mounir Fatmi in Architectural Digest

Danna Lorch, Architectural Digest Middle East, May 10, 2017

Rising nationalist movements in countries such as the USA and France are affecting the practices of creative minds. Danna Lorch speaks to Paris-based artist Mounir Fatmi ahead of the opening of his solo exhibition Inside the Fire Circle at Lawrie Shabibi, about his experience working and exhibiting abroad. 


"When I am physically inside an institution showing my works, I am the artist," says Moroccan-born Fatmi. " But when I leave the museum, I am an immigrant worker. At any time, authorities can ask me a thousand questions."
