Join us on Friday September 8 at 7 pm at Motto Berlin for the launch of “Manufacturing Narratives,” the second issue of MAKAN.

MAKAN is a journal of culture and space that is edited and published by Think Tanger, an independent arts organization based in Tangier, Morocco. Its inaugural issue “Informal Utopias” was published in 2020 and established the foundations of MAKAN as a vehicle for critical engagement with contemporary architectural and urban conditions and with academic scholarship emanating from, or focused on exploring, Africa and the Arabic-speaking milieu. 

The second issue “Manufacturing Narratives,” focuses on how interrogating narrativity can provoke fundamental questions about how societies define or choose to accept societal or historical truths in today’s world. Contributors to the issue include: Ala Younis, Ali T. As’ad, Bari Abbassi, A. George Bajalia, Karim Kattan, Karima Kadaoui, Kenza Sefrioui, Lahbib El Moumi, Laila Hida, Maureen Mougin, Mohamed Amer Meziane, Monica Basbous, Nadia Tazi, Sénamé Koffi Agbodjinou, Sonia Terrab, Soufiane Hennani, Yto Barrada.

The event will include presentations by the creative director of Think Tanger, Hicham Bouzid, and the editor of MAKAN Issue #2, Ali T. As’ad. The presentations will be followed by a conversation / Q&A moderated by Berlin-based urban researcher and performance artist Nancy Naser Al Deen.
