Jasmina Metwaly

Jasmina Metwaly is a Polish born artist of Egyptian descent. Growing up between Warsaw and Cairo, she received degrees from Poznan and London before moving back to Cairo in 2009.

Following the revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, Metwaly was a member of the video and social-media collective Mosireen and collaborated with the filmmaker Philip Rizk, promoting video activism and “document unrest”. More recently, she has spent time in her studio and in a residency in Italy, reflecting on the tumultuous past with a renewed focus on artistic practice and its specific audience.
