Bouchra Khalili. *Foreign Office*. 2015. Digital video (color, sound), 22 min. Produced within the framework of the Sam Art Prize. Courtesy of the artist

Berlin-based Moroccan-French artist Bouchra Khalili presents a screening program including Foreign Office (2015) (around which her current exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo is centered) and the final chapters of her Speeches trilogy (2013). Trained in cinema and visual art and working across mediums, Khalili often retools the aesthetic strategies of documentary cinema. Her work focuses on historical speculation and the representation of subjects rendered invisible by the nation-state. Khalili will be joined by Thomas J. Lax, associate curator in MoMA’s Department of Media and Performance Art, for a discussion. This program is organized on the occasion of the Museum’s recent acquisition of the artist's complete series of videos, The Mapping Journey Project.
