The Biennale Internationale de Casablanca is pleased to announce the beginning of its 2019/2020 incubation phase developed by Artistic Director Christine Eyene, in preparation for its 5th edition that will take place from 24 September to 1st November 2020.
The programme will be hosted at the biennial’s new Project Space conceived as an experimental venue with a capacity to host exhibitions, screenings, workshops and meetings.
