The exhibition presents an inversion of the archetypal notion of culture with women as “intruders” who have the same gestures and stature as men in public spaces: playing cards, watching a football match, sitting in cafes, and so on.

The exhibition is part of events organized by the French Institute in Croatia and the French Embassy, ahead of the Forum for equality of the generations, a global feminist conference chaired by France and Mexico and will be held in Paris from 30 June to 2 July.

In addition to Maroufi’s exhibition, the institute will organize round table debates on gender-based violence and autonomy of the body, sexual and reproductive health, and rights.

Maroufi will be in Zagreb herself from 30 May to 3 June. She graduated from the National Institute of Fine Arts in Tetouan, Morocco, and the School of Fine Arts, Angers, in Le Fresnoy in France.

She has received many awards for her films Le Park (2105), Bab Sebta (2019), and Les Intruses (2019).

She has conducted exhibitions throughout the world. They include the Reina Sofía Museum, Spain, New Museum, USA,  Boghossian Foundation, Brussels, Belgium, and the Biennale de Dakar, Senegal.  

The Zagreb exhibition in the French Institute will remain open until 30 June.
