Gardens of Fez

A film project by Heidi Vogels
Production: Heidi Vogels
Conceptual and production coaching: Manon Bovenkerk for near/by film

Gardens of Fez is a long-term research and film project that centers on the walled gardens in the medina of Fez in Morocco.


Vogels research throughout the years unfolded a cartography of spaces, practices and knowledges linked to the garden. Drawing on the notion of heterotopia as drafted by Michel Foucault, Gardens of Fez explores the interplay of different dimensions of a shared reality as it used to be. The garden exists therefore as a space in between, allowing moving from the site to the subjectivities that inhabit(ed) it.


Gardens of Fez will be presented as a single screen work of 50 minutes and an independent 3-channel installation.
