About Emily Jacir

 

Emily Jacir (b. 1970) was born in Palestine and currently lives around the Mediterranean. Jacir's works span a wide range of media and strategies, including photography, social interventions, installation, performance, video and sound. She often problematizes the consequences that political and religious views have for the individual. Jacir is particularly preoccupied with the issues in the Middle East, and her works often take their cue from the challenges that the Palestinian people face daily because of the Israeli occupation of the country.
