Sama Alshaibi, Photography/Video Art, University of Arizona

This talk explores the intersections of contemporary migration crises through a selection of Alshaibi’s work. The lecture is informed by Alshaibi’s own biography and considers the impact of socio-political conditions on individuals under threat of the state or statelessness. These forces are contextualized when resources and land, mobility, political agency, and self-affirmation are compromised.
