In this public lecture, Basma Alsharif will present a number of her films and discuss her artistic practice.


The films and videos of Basma Alsharif explore the subjective experience of political landscape, investigating the links between a geographical space and its mental representation. Born in Kuwait of Palestinian origin, Alsharif’s nomadic existence – brought up in France and the United States, she has lived in Beirut, Amman, Cairo, Paris, and is currently based in Los Angeles– is deeply embedded in her work, which often experiments with ideas of bi-location and the figure of the double.

Whether working with photography, film, video, sound, text or language, the representation of Palestine as a place where the constant feeling of threat and the ever-changing geographical borders produce a sense of unreal is a crucial subject in Alsharif’s work and her on-going interrogation of the relationship between history and the human condition.
