The exhibition Pierre opens following Matti Braun’s residency in Morocco in April 2009. This first research residency led the artist to travel between Morocco (Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca) and Senegal (Dakar) in the footsteps of the personality of the Germany sculptor Arno Breker, controversial for his collaboration with Hitler and the Nazis. Breker worked for King Hassan II of Morocco and President Léopold Sédar Senghor of Senegal in the 1960s and 70s.

The poetic and visual approach proposed in this project also reveals a political aspect of a history that is often unwritten.
