Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh

Artist Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh has a background in photography. She combines research, conversational, image and (meta) archiving practices with long-term commitment to reflect on the agency of photos and notions of collectivity and power. Her work is linked to the interpersonal relationships that develop over time. One of her long-term projects explores the impossibility of representation, through a negotiation process around a potential digital archive compiled in collaboration with residents of Burj al-Shamali, a Palestinian refugee camp near Tyr, Lebanon. In 2018 she obtained her PhD from the Institute of Art Theory and Cultural Studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Since 2008 she has been part of theArab Image Foundation , a non-profit organization that tracks, collects, conserves and studies photography from the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora and presents its now extensive collection to the public through an online database, publications and exhibitions. Eid-Sabbagh was a Fellow in the BAK Fellowship Program 2018/2019. She received the Arles Discovery Award, in 2013 and 8 e Vevey International Photography Award in 2011 for her collaboration with Rozenn Quéré, titled Dirty Possibles et Imaginaires ( Possible and Imaginary Life).
