In his new book 'Lumières marocaines', Fouad Laroui presents and analyses the work of 60 Moroccan artists. The creative contradiction between the individual and the nation form the basis of his essay.
Politics, feminism and social justice are themes that run through much of contemporary Moroccan art. By their 'exubérant praxis', artists seem to understand and express its complex society better than many scholars. With more than 100 pictures, 'Lumières marocaines' forms a near-complete panorama of what's going on in Morocco's art scene today.
