Jumana Manna and Övül Durmusoglu: Please Play?

Jumana Manna’s work deals with complex structures of history and its ideological narration while looking after the moments that alter the ways of imagination. For her current research in Turkey around Syrian refugees, the artist departs from the 1987 made documentary film ‘The Dream’ or ‘Al-Manam’ by Mohammed Malas that is composed of interviews with Palestinian refugees in Lebanon during civil war. In her conversation with Ovul O. Durmusoglu she will elaborate on her recent production such as ‘The Goodness Regime’ a collaboration with Sille Storihle and think about different positions contemporary art circles take approaching current crises and conflicts of power.

Jumana Manna (b.1987 in Princeton, NJ, USA, lives and works in Berlin, Germany) holds an MA in Aesthetics and Politics from CalArts, Los Angeles, CA, USA and a BFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Norway. Working primarily with video and sculpture, Manna explores the construction of identity in relation to historical narratives and uncertain states of contemporary communities. In 2012, Manna was awarded the Young Palestinian Artist of the Year Award sponsored by the A. M. Qattan Foundation for her short film A Sketch of Manners (Alfred Roch’s Last Masquerade).
