    About the artist

    Lives and works in Berlin, Germany
    1970: Born in Paris, France

    Kader Attia was born in 1970 into an Algerian family in Paris. He studied both Philosophy and Fine Art in Paris and spent a year at Barcelona’s School of Applied Art in 1993.

    His childhood between France and Algeria, going back and forth between the Christian Occident, the Islamic Maghreb and the Jewish Algerian Sephardic world, has had a profound impact on his work and time spent living in the Congo-Kinshasa, as well as Venezuela has further informed his vision. His work tackles the increasingly difficult relationship between Europe and immigrants, particularly those of Islamic faith.
