Ala Younis

Ala Younis is an artist, trained as an architect in Amman. Research forms a big part of her practice, as do curating, collaboration, and film and book projects. Her work deals with collective experiences that collapse into personal ones, with how the archive plays on predilections, and how its lacunas and mishaps manipulate the imagination. Her work has been featured in solo shows in Amman, London, Seville, Sharjah, Dubai, and New York, at the Istanbul and Gwangju Biennials, and New Museum Triennial. In 2013, she curated Kuwait’s first national pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale and co-founded the publishing initiative Kayfa ta. She is member of the Advisory Board of Berlinale’s Forum Expanded and the Academy of Arts of the World (Cologne).
