Artist Talk: Basma Al-Sharif
March 12, 2022 | 2:00–3:00
Free, registration required
Hear from Basma Al-Sharif, an artist and filmmaker of Palestinian origin who developed her practice nomadically between the Middle East, Europe, and North America.
Al-Sharif will discuss her latest work, Capital—a film and site-specific installation created for the Ruttenberg Contemporary Photography Series that explores the rise of fascism through architecture. The talk will focus on the driving forces behind the construction of cities and urban planning, the use of satire to frame politics, and the impossibility of free speech.
