Kader Attia is an artist whose work investigates the identity politics of historical and colonial eras, pointing out perpetual elements of tradition within modernity until today, in the light of our globalized world. For several years, Attia’s research has focused on the concept of “repair” as a constant in human nature. From culture to nature, gender to architecture, science to philosophy, all systems of life are in an infinite process of repair. In 2016 Attia founded La Colonie, a space in Paris to share ideas and to provide an agora for vivid discussion.
