"Kader Attia"
Photograph: Elisabeth Bernstein Kader Attia, "Show Your Injuries", 2014.

Growing up between the Algeria and the suburbs of Paris, Kader Attia always felt culturally out of place. His collages, sculptures and installation confront his search for identity, exploring the differences between Western and non-Western approaches to history and tradition. His latest exhibition at the Block Museum is centered around newly commissioned work informed by Attia's research in the collections of Northwestern University’s Herskovits Library of Africana Studies.
