Full Description

“I try to create a parallel world where my own aesthetics are there, but with traditional garments.” — Mous Lamrabat in The Guardian

“If there was a trifecta of Mous’s personal passions and pillars to his practice, it would be the power of women, the senselessness of racism, and the beauty of Africa.” Vogue Arabia

Mousganistan is the first book of the acclaimed Moroccan-born, Belgium-raised artist Mous Lamrabat, encompassing a body of work that has been more than five years in the making. Mousganistan is a celebration of love and freedom, an in-between territory in which opposites collide and create beauty and abundance, new connections and dialogues in a visually thought-provoking and at times confronting way. Encompassing his iconic fashion imagery and personal work, Mousganistan is a journey into the artist’s diasporic life, a joyous and yet intensely sharp portrait of the contact space between cultures, symbols, religions, capitalism and survival. By challenging our expectations of what cultures are, and how they should be portrayed, his images create a space for love, compassion and understanding – allowing us to imagine a possible, different world.
