Statement of Balack
Mehdi Hadj Khalifa

Diverse ideas and talents have brought us all together to axe Balack towards architecture. Even though we strongly share some overall common denominators, they do bring few corrections to our enterprise, whose risky nature is undeniable.
Balack is determined to make an impression on stand taking positions and plans to put the light on a generation’s work, aware of living in an era of fundamental changes.
We are all passionate to different extents and at different levels by events in which we participate.
Balack does not have the pretention to examine and present all aspects and orientations of this coming to life situation. With it, we would like to remind you that nowadays, means of creation and communication have never been so close; and exchanged their spirit, their methods, and even materials. The access to Art-works, as much for the producer as for the consumer, is taking original ways. All techniques have been or will be modified, replaced…
We wish, without pretention or prejudice, to awake the minds of all those for whom the present is a function of a future from which they do not want to be deceived.
