As an artist, Mohamed El baz (°1967, MA) has only one goal before him: to fix the things around him, in his own words "the irreparable." In his work El baz explores the notions of borders and territories, especially those what would raise barriers between individuals. El baz plays upon three themes in his work: the everyday, the autobiographical and the playful. The work itself is nomadic and transforms itself according to the context.
