HB 22

Hicham Bouzid is a creative director, editor, curator, and mentor of the Prince Claus Building Beyond Mentorship based in Tangier, Morocco. With over 13 years of experience collaborating with cultural institutions and foundations worldwide, his work delves into the intricate interplay of Morocco’s urban and social landscapes influenced by neoliberal policies over the past quarter-century.

In 2016, Hicham co-founded Think Tanger, an innovative cultural organization working at the intersection of contemporary art, design, participatory research, and urban fields. Under the umbrella of Think Tanger, he manages three spaces: Tanger Print Club (a printing studio), an art residency, and the Kiosk, a new art venue recently inaugurated in his hometown. Alongside these endeavors, he has also started Makan, a yearly journal focusing on culture and space.

Hicham’s expertise has led him to serve as a jury member for esteemed organizations such as the Arab Funds for Arts and Culture in Beirut and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. He has actively participated in fairs and seminars with renowned international institutions including Tamayo Museo in Mexico City, Mucem in Marseille, Les Ateliers Luma in Arles, Paris International in Paris, and Focal Point of Sharjah Art Foundation in Sharjah.

Currently, he sits on the boards of LE 18 art space in Marrakech and of “The Mothership,” a community-led research center grounded in the Moroccan landscape.
