“We are not worried in the least”

Arts of Critique with Jasmina Metwaly, filmmaker, artist, and founder of the Mosireen Collective

Jasmina Metwaly is an artist and filmmaker based in Cairo and Berlin, and a member of the Mosireen video collective. She works in video and film, and has recently started drawing again. Rooted in performance, theater, and film, her works focus on process-based practices that have a social function generating tension between participants and audiences. Metwaly’s work has been exhibited at international art venues and festivals, including Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, IFFR–International Film Festival Rotterdam, Sfeir-Semler Gallery and Berlinale Forum Expanded.

Please note, at 7pm on January 30, “Out On The Streets” will be screened at BAMPFA as part of their Documentary Voices film series. Details here.

Co-sponsored by the Arts Research Center, UCHRI, Center for Middle Eastern Studies and BAMPFA.

This event is free and open to the public.
