We are discussing with Soukaina Joual to participate this year.
Videos, performances, paintings, and installations are the mediums through which Soukaina Joual examines social issues of race, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity.
Through her work, the artist brings to life her interest in how one’s body can translate and reflect various tensions, dynamics, and differences. Her main focus is on the body where she showcases it from different perspectives: its changes, its interaction with personal identity, and the opportunity to make it a site to engage in important ideological debates. The Moroccan artist uses the body to create a metaphor for society by exploiting its historical form with a modernist perspective.
