EXPERTISE

He is an architect and a curator. Since 2016, he directs the INTERFERENCE Light Art Project in the Medina of Tunis, since 2017 he directs the International Media Art Project SEE DJERBA in Houmt Souk — both in tandem with Bettina Pelz.

In 2015, he founded the DOOLESHA project, a collective of urban activists to research and map the interplay of historic settings, ongoing urban developments, and the sociocultural tissue of contemporary Medina. He headed projects like DOORA-FEL-HOUMA what is a sociocultural project to engage young locals in research and mediation of the present changes in the Medina.

In 2013, he started to work at the National Institute of Heritage. His focus was research on the Medina of Tunis as the UNESCO Cultural Heritage.
