Olivier Marboeuf

(*1971, France)

Olivier Marboeuf is an author, storyteller, curator and founder of the art centre Espace Khiasma, located in Les Lilas on the outskirts of Paris. He directed Khiasma from 2004 to 2018, developing a programme that addressed minority representations through exhibitions, screenings, debates, performances and collaborative projects across north-east Paris. Marboeuf is interested in the different modalities of transmission of knowledge, and his work is based on practices of conversation and speculative narratives, attempting to create ephemeral situations of culture. In particular, he notably explores the potential of the night. His interest in narrative forms in art has led him to develop a specific practice of accompaniment for artists inscribed in film practices. He currently produces films within Spectre Productions, based in Rennes. In addition, he develops fiction texts and conducts theoretical research on decolonial practices in the field of culture and the domain of the body as archive space. He regularly publishes his work in progress on the blog Toujours Debout.
