Bruno Boudjelal, photographe, artiste en résidence
Each year, the FIFDH honors an artist and offers him, in partnership with the commune of Meyrin, an artistic residency allowing him to create an original work. After the filmmaker Rithy Panh in 2017 and the cartoonist Guy Delisle in 2018, the Festival is pleased to welcome this year the photographer Bruno Boudjelal, member of the famous Agence VU’.
A committed artist, a fervent defender of pan-Africanism, Bruno Boudjelal constantly questions his own identity and confronts us with ours. He will present at the Festival, and for the first time, “Ne mourrons pas fatigués”, a project that addresses the issue of migration flows through narration and personal testimony. A highlighting of the resilience shown by women and men during their recent or past migratory journeys.
