Performance of the artist Faten Rouissi, ZKM/HfG, atrium 3

Faten Rouissi (*1967) is a fine artist from Tunisia and known, above all, for her interventions in public spaces, in the form of performances and installations. In 2012, she founded the association “24 heures pour l'art contemporain”, and is initiator of the international street art project “De Colline en Colline” in Tunis, Enfidha and Tataouine in March 2013. Her actions had a particularly powerful resonance during the Tunisian revolution. Through participative strategies, the artist questioned and further reflected on the hegemonic structures. The performance at the ZKM is a continuation of “Street Art – Art in the Neighborhood”, a performance which took place in Tunisia, in 2011. At that time Faten Rouissi sent out an appeal, via Facebook, to fine artists, students and activists as well as to the inhabitants of the city, to turn the burnt-out car wrecks of the revolts into symbols of freedom.
