Barbican Meets: Yto Barrada

Encompassing a mural, film commission, sculptures, and a series of live and recorded performances, Yto Barrada‘s Agadir considers how a city and its people might address the process of reinvention following disaster.

Barrada takes as her starting point a surreal text by Mohammed Khaïr-Eddine – Agadir (1967) – reflecting on the devastating earthquake of 1960 that destroyed much of the modernist Moroccan city. Here, she speaks to curator Lotte Johnson about the process behind making the work and how it fits within the Barbican.

Yto Barrada: Agadir is exhibited until 20 May in The Curve and is free.
