Hammam Exhibition in Fez: update

On 11 March, The View from Fez posted an article about the forthcoming Hammam Exhibition (see it here). We now have more details.

The exhibition Hammam: Hidden Door - Living Treasure will be open from 10h00 to 18h00 from 22 March to 8 April at the National School of Architecture in the Cherratine Medersa in the Fez Medina. The inauguration of the exhibition is at 17h00 on 22 March.

This Euromed project is financed by the European Union, and in Morocco, has ADER Fes as a partner. Hammams in Damascus and Cairo, as well as the Seffarine hammam in Fez, are being restored to their former glory as an extremely important part of the community structure.

The exhibition will include objects, video installations, panoramic photos, architectural models and documentary films to give an insight into the history, the present, and the future of this public institution. It shows architectural features, handicraft technologies and social values as well as the intergenerational impacts of the hammam.
