HUDUD (arab. “borders”) is a transdisciplinary art and research programme. It brings together young artists, architects and social scientists based in Morocco. HUDUD focuses on mobility beyond mental and territorial borders. The programme takes inspiration from the life and work of the late Fatema Mernissi. A pioneering feminist, she was also a renowned sociologist, a successful novelist, and a committed social activist. How to think beyond our limitations, and to transgress the symbolic borders between disciplines and methodologies, in order to embrace mobility as a mode of research: the mobility of ideas, memories, imaginaries and forms of representation.
