is a series of porcelain multiples by Abir Kobeissi, produced between 2018 and still being in production till today.
Fabrication européenne is a result of two years of Kobeissi experimenting with ceramics , two years of living in Germany …and 31 years of being alive.
The work was provocative to many , and funny to others.
This photo of the work was banned to be published in a little project Kobeissi was taking part of with her class colleagues at the academy of fine arts in Munich. The people who wanted to ban the photo were telling the Professor Pola Sieverding that this form is too much of a phallic symbol… Until they changed their mind and published it because of the solidarity of Kobeissi’s colleagues who wanted to boycott the project refusing to accept censorship!
