Donja Nasseri

Info: Photography plays a central role in my work because of its capacity for collage techniques and its memory-creating function. (Donja Nasseri)

 

Donja Nasseri’s work combines photography, objects, video and language to a collaged unity. As the German-born daughter of an Afghan father and an Egyptian-German mother, she has a sharp view of the diversity of possible narrations and the truths associated with them. The changes in tradition, culture and (gender) identity make up the conceptual core of Donja Nasseri’s oeuvre, which is primarily based on photography as a carrier of memories, as a medium of documentation and fictional manipulation with all digital and analog collage techniques.
