On the occasion of the exhibition Susan Meiselas. Mediations, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies has invited the Syrian artist of Kurdish origin, Guevara Namer, to become an artist-in-residence. Guevara Namer is a photographer and documentary filmmaker. The purpose of the residence is to invite an artist in the specific context of Barcelona and the Fundació to establish a dialogue between her artistic practice and that of the current exhibition.
Guevara Namer will be one of the mediators of the akaKurdistan workshop led by Susan Meiselas. She will also conduct the activity Reading Kurdistan and will collaborate with the education department by organising one of the Open Projects activities. Moreover, the Fundació will be showing her film Morning Fears, Night Chants, 2012, awarded the IDFA Amsterdam Documentary Film Festival.
The residency is developed within the framework of the European Project 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture.
