Sama Alshaibi, School of Art Photography Associate Professor, is participating in Krísis exhibition, held in Bonington Gallery, Nottingham Trent University, England. The exhibit runs from October 28 – December 9, 2016.
In what seems like an intensifying atmosphere of global, media-driven expressions of shock, horror, fear and anxiety — how can we use states of crisis as ways to re-think the future? Can we harness these acutely painful conditions as opportunities to recuperate alternative modes of creativity?
Crisis, with reference to its Greek etymology, is connoted as a power of distinguishing, a decision, a choice, a dispute. In the 17th century ‘crisis’ is locates the pivotal meaning of ‘decisive point’, and in the contemporary, holds particular potency when thinking about longstanding societal issues that pertain to migration, borders and the humanitarian condition in the 21st century.
