L'Aquarium: Musée Collectif (2016)

Since 2012, at the initiative of the artist Mohamed Fariji, the Atelier de l’Observatoire has been working on the reactivation of the former Casablanca Aquarium, leading a collective utopic reflection on its future through dedicated workshops, visits, symposia, publications and exhibitions. Collective reflection on reconversion or reappropriation becomes in itself a new possible use for a space that has been drained of its first purpose and fallen into disuse.
