Jasmina Metwaly

Born to an Egyptian father and a Polish mother, Jasmina Metwaly is a Cairo-Berlin-based artist and filmmaker, and member of Mosireen collective. She works in video and film, and has recently started drawing again. She likes to work with people and their histories, texts, archives, images, scripts and drawings. She is interested in how stories create stories, and how they leave the space of one reality and enter another, intertwining the boundaries of both. Rooted in performance and theatre, her works focus on process-based practices that have a social function that generates tension between participants and audiences. (from Savvy-Contemporary)
