Heba Amin selected for the 15th Istanbul Biennial


Egyptian artist and BCB guest faculty Heba Amin was selected to participate in this year’s Istanbul Biennial, which will run from September 16 to November 12. 

Titled “A Good Neighbor,” the 2017 edition of the Biennial focuses on the topic of home, belonging, and neighborhood. Amin’s multimedia work will be displayed alongside the works of 54 other artists from 32 countries. 

Amin’s artistic work has been shown worldwide with recent exhibitions at Dak’Art 2016 Biennale, the Marrakech Biennale 2016 Parallel Projects, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, the Kunstverein Hamburg, Berlin Berlinale Forum Expanded (2014, 2016), and the IV Moscow International Biennale for Young Art. She is primarily interested in tactics of subversion and techniques used to undermine systems as well as topics surrounding critical spatial practice and critical geography.
