July 5, 2022, marked 60 years since Algeria's independence. In time for this anniversary, we wish to look at this history through the prism of photography and reflect on the construction of modern Algeria through the tensions and the potential avenues encapsulated in the terms "revolution," "independence," and "decolonization" in a visual conversation.
"Mohamed Kouaci: Vision(s) of Algeria"
Curated by Adel Ben Bella, the photography exhibit centers on the work of Algerian photographer Mohamed Kouaci. Kouaci was one of the very few Algerian photographers to document the entire Algerian War of Independence (1954-1962) on the FLN (Front de Libération Nationale) side as well as the first few years (1962-1965) of the new Algerian Nation.
