As a child who was raised between France and Algeria, Attia was often between worlds of the Christian Occident and the Islamic Maghreb. Much of his work is inspired by the range of differences on cultures, history and social structures in negotiating an identity between North Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. Attia explores the creation and evolution of individual identity within the globalized contexts of multiple connected cultures.
Kader Attia was exhibited in the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, Sharjah Biennial in 2017, Daka’Art Biennale in 2016 and 2014, Documenta (13) in 2012, the Biennial of Dublin in 2011, and 8th Bamako Encounters – African Biennale of Photography in 2009. Some of his solo exhibitions have been presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney, Australia); Museum für Moderne Kunst, Musée Cantonal des Beaux Arts in Switzerland, KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Germany); Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, and Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon.
