Through a recurring collaboration with the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya- MNAC, LOOP Barcelona presents Randa Maroufi’s ‘Les Intruses’ from the collection of FRAC Bretagne.
Part of the series Les Intruses [The Intruders], Barbès is a video that questions the decentring of archetypal representations that we produce around culture. A group of young women – «the intruders» – occupies the public space for the time of the mise en scène. They take on the same gestures, the same postures, as those of the men in such places: they play cards or watch a football match without minding the passage of time. They occupy terraces and expose themselves in the strangeness of a public space of exclusion – that of gender.
