mounir fatmi constructs visual spaces and linguistic games to explore power, politics and religion. His work deals with the desecration of religious objects, deconstruction and the end of dogmas and ideologies. He is particularly interested in the idea of death in relation to consumption, which he applies to objects such as antenna cables, copier machines, obsolete languages or political movements. His videos, installations, drawings, paintings and sculptures address the current world events, and bring to light human doubts, fears and desires.
