About Kader Attia - 关于卡迪尔·阿提亚

 

Kader Attia (b. 1970) is of Algerian descent, born in France - and grew up in both countries. He lives and works in Berlin today. In his works, which include installation, sculpture, photography and film, he explores the western cultural and political influence in the Middle East and North Africa. He often uses his own upbringing, which was marked by both Christianity and Islam, as a starting point for his works. In this way, he investigates how cultural differences can put many obstacles in the way of peaceful coexistence.
