Assarag is a photo-ethnographic project about Berber culture and habitat in rural Morocco by photographer Bart Deseyn. The term assarag has a double usage in the southern Moroccan Berber language Tachelhit. It indicates the central place in the village where people meet for community events and it also refers to the core of the house where family life takes place.

As such Assarag represents the two principle aspects of this work: the context and the social organization of Berber society in rural Morocco.
