Travel to Timbuktu and back again via Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint’s art collection, displayed at Maison Tiskiwin. Each room represents a caravan stop along the Sahara-to-Marrakesh route, with indigenous crafts from Tuareg camel saddles to High Atlas carpets. The accompanying text is often more eccentric than explanatory (an example: ‘By modifying his pristine nakedness Man seeks to reveal his image of himself’) but Tiskiwin’s well-travelled artefacts offer tantalising glimpses of Marrakesh’s trading-post past.
