Famakan Magassa - Artist in Residence

Mar 27 2024 - Apr 30 2024

Famakan Magassa *1997 from Mali is our Artist in Residence 2024. His works fascinate with a very own figurative language between android and human.

There is a significant difference between dreaming with closed or open eyes. «Dream with open Eyes» is about embracing the nightmares and perils of this planet with eyes wide open: Inequality, injustice, torture and war.

Famakan Magassa is an artist who takes a very close look. During his residency at Fondation WhiteSpaceBlackBox in NeuchĂątel-Switzerland, he created a new, monumental, African interpretation of Guernica.
