The Algerian-French artist Kader Attia (*1970) is an internationally acclaimed artist. His installations and photographs are based on profound ethnological, sociological and philosophical research. A central topos is the influence of colonialism on Western and non-Western cultures and the processes it causes. The focus of the exhibition at the Ludwig Museum Koblenz is the film “Réfléchir la Mémoire”, for which Kader Attia received the renowned Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2016. The accompanying publication presents selected works that reflect on the theme of architecture and the memory that manifests itself in it.
