HUDUD (arab. “borders”) is a transdisciplinary art and research programme that brings together young artists, architects and social scientists based in Morocco. HUDUD focuses on mobility beyond mental and territorial borders and takes inspiration from the life and work of the late Fatema Mernissi. A pioneering feminist, she was also a renowned sociologist, a successful novelist and a committed social activist. The programme asks how to think beyond our limitations, and to transgress the symbolic borders between disciplines and methodologies, in order to embrace mobility as a mode of research: the mobility of ideas, memories, imaginaries and forms of representation.
The HUDUD project is a collaboration between the Fatema Mernissi Chair (Mohammed V University and HEM, Rabat) and UNESCO, in partnership with ifa-Galerie Berlin and the Institute of Fine Arts in Tetouan. It has received support from UNESCO, the Goethe-Institut, and Royal Air Maroc.
