A Forgotten Filmmaker
Category: Cinema
Year: 2018

Tahar Hannache is the first Algerian filmmaker. He directed ‘Aux Portes du Sahara’ in 1938. The anti-colonial film disappeared during World War II but was recently found at the Cinémathèque of Penthaz, Switzerland.

Laughter in Hell
Category: Visual Arts
Year: 2014
Status: Open

Through humor, Algerians have been able to talk about and denunciate the most unspeakable of  events. Laughter in Hell addresses the psychological, philosophical and political dimensions of jokes and the tropes of irony and parody as a subversive mode of communication during Algeria's ‘Black Decade’ during which the government fought a brutal internal war against Islamist insurgency. Laughter in Hell is a cultural research and installation project that explores black humor as a form of resistance used by civilians to escape everyday violence.
