Voice (re) Claimed

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition/Curation


In this interdisciplinary project, I collaborated with conceptual artist, Manal Al-Dowayan, to create an installation that represents the interconnected nature of local and global discourses about the social category "Saudi woman." We jointly conducted video-taped qualitative interviews with Saudi Arabian women across the country to contrast women's rich narratives about their lives with the reductionist representations surrounding them. We also documented our process through a series of exchanges in the form of a blog in order to theorize about collaborative feminist projects. Based on our research, we produced an installation which featured in Art Dubai’s program in 2015. The installation attracted over 180 people from artistic and academic institutions who visited the studio as part of the official program.
