Actively working since the mid 1980s, Federico Guzmán (Seville, 1964) has always viewed artistic practice as a commitment to his environment. As a part and consequence of his personal experience in the Sahara, Federico Guzmán has erected a huge Bedouin tent to enter into dialogue with the Palacio de Cristal. In Hassaniya Tuiza means solidary collective work: coming together, participating and building something jointly. Therefore, this tent is presented as a space for hospitality and conversation between cultures, holding workshops and other collective activities. This programme of activities endeavours to become tuiza, a space to decolonise the imagination and articulate knowledge and sensibility circulating from south to south, without stopping at the homogenisation of the centre or the Western narrative.
