2Fik is a French-born multidisciplinary artist of Moroccan heritage based in Montreal, Quebec. His art practice includes photography, performance and video. He is the artistic director, photographer and model of his artworks in which he portrays a variety of characters that are used to create images that toy with our perception of identity, image and gender. 2Fik confronts the boundaries placed around identities and the expectations on gender.
2Fik is coming to Carleton thanks to the Mellon Public Works project headed by Stephanie Cox, a Senior Lecturer of the French Department and the Cross-Cultural Studies Department at Carleton College. While on campus, he will serve as the Center for Community and Civic Engagement Artist-in-Residence for three weeks (October 15-November 5). 2Fik first came to Carleton in 2011 and in 2013, he came back to participate in the Carleton’s Living-Learning Community pilot for first-year students, Civil Discourse on a Diverse Campus.
2Fik returned to campus to continue collaborations with Professor Stephanie Cox and numerous community partners, including Northfield Public Schools, the Northfield Public Library, the Key, and St. Olaf. 2Fik is working with these partners to to start new projects and to propose new opportunities for discussions on identity, inclusivity and understanding. 2Fik is an on-campus artist in residence during fall term 2019.

Books and discussions will focus on the relationships between men, feminism and the role they can have in making our society more equal and fair regardless of anyone’s gender identity, sexual orientation or gender expression. More than ever, it is important to work toward a society in which everyone is equal. To do so, men have a pivotal role in changing the situation and three books will help us think about the relationship of men with feminism and discuss these topics during these book club meetings. Please join us for one meeting or the whole series. All are welcome!
