Madrassa (school in Arabic) is a collective of young curators and art practitioners based in Africa and the Middle East. Madrassa Collective is composed by eight members working in different fields such as research, curation and cultural management.

Madrassa Collective's exhibition proposal Something to Generate From proposes to investigate the practice of institution building as an artwork by tracing back and mapping a number of institutional projects created by artists and artistic collectives active primarily in the regions their curatorial collective comes from.

Envisioning exhibition making as a research and critical endeavor, Madrassa aims at experimenting and questioning collective practices and transborders collaborations as a means to resist and confront the difficulties of art making in their regions.
