An artist’s book disguised as a medical publication written by six fictional women characters from Morocco in free wheeling, Narrative Machines documents the recent work of artist Ghita Skali (born 1992 in Casablanca, lives in Amsterdam), and constitues in itself part of her work. Written in collaboration with Ayla Mrabet and Kaoutar Chaqchaq, Narrative Machines clothes truth with falsehood. With wry irony and a Google-translated English, it comments on paranoia, fake news, patriarchy, government and the media ganging together in the Maghreb (as everywhere else), but it also shows a chosen community of women who confide, support each other and laugh a good load
