Through technological creations, Mounir Ayache attempts to approach the political and social realities of the Arab world in a new way. By exploring and proposing new realities and alternative futures, Ayache articulates a radically different representation of the Arab world than that which has been communicated in Western discourse. This tendency towards science-fiction in articulating fictionalised re-appropriations of experience and Arab identity, connects Ayache to the unofficial movement of Arabfuturism, which derives its name from the ‘90s movement of Afrofuturism. These movements are marked by a turn to fiction that allows for the creation of alternative spaces and narratives, and the imagination of inspiringly different  realities.

Mounir Ayache is graduated from Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris in 2017, where he won the video/new technologies Prize in 2018 as part of the the exhibition Felicità 18. He was a winner of The Creator Source by Adidas fellowship in 2018.
His work has been shown at Biennale de Paname (Paris, France), Galerie Cinéma (Paris, France) and more recently at Galerie Jeune Création (Romainville, France) as part of the exhibition A Spoonful of Sugar, curated by collectif Diamètre.

Mounir Ayache's new commission work for Manifesta 13 Marseille is shown as part of the exhibition "The School: The Sonours, The Audible and The Silenced" at Le Conservatoire, from October 9 – November 29, 2020.
