Olivier Marboeuf

Olivier Marboeuf is a writer, storyteller and curator. He founded and ran the independent art centre, Espace Khiasma, since 2004 in Les Lilas, on the outskirts of Paris. At Khiasma, he has developed a programme addressing minority representations through exhibitions, screenings, debates, performances and collaborative projects across the North-East of Paris. Since 2017 Khiasma has merged into an experimental platform, exploring ways of creating a place collectively and developing an online radiophonic tool, R22 Tout-Monde. Interested in different modalities of knowledge transmission, Olivier Marboeuf’s proposals are inscribed in conversational practices and speculative narratives, attempting to create ephemeral situations of culture. He currently produces films within Spectre productions, Rennes, and contributes to the cinematic distribution and research unit, Phantom. Khiasma closed in October 2018 for financial reasons but a new collective project will soon appear in Les Lilas.
