mounir fatmi video work at Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum and on group exhibition at Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha

mounir fatmi has produced a new video work for Exotic x Modern, an exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum (6 October – 14 January). Titled The Human Factor, the work splices elements from a 1920s silent film, considered a manifesto for the Art Deco movement, together with archive materials from the 1931 Paris Colonial Exposition as an allusion to how these two cultural spheres of French society intersected. In Doha, fatmi also shows work on Revolution Generations at the Arab Museum of Art – an which brings together artists interest in important moments of change in the history of modern and contemporary art and runs (17 October – 16 February).
