Mounir FATMI (1970, Morocco) is an all-round visual artist living and working between Paris, Lille and Tangier. Since the beginning of the nineties he has been active in video art, painting, sculpture, installation and performance art and photography. Fatmi's works, frequently using using materials such as antenna cable, typewriters and VHS tapes, comment on current events in the world and bring to light human fears and desires. In 2011 his work was included in the first Pan-Arab exhibition at the 54th Venice Biennial. He also held solo exhibitions in the Migros Museum für Gegenwarskunst in Zürich, at the AK Bank Foundation in Istanbul, at MMP+ Marrakesh and at Goteborg Konsthall.
