Ala Younis

Ala Younis is an artist and curator. She seeks instances where historical and political events collapse into personal ones. Her work also looks into how the archive plays on predilections and how its lacunas and mishaps manipulate the imagination. She curated Kuwait’s first pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2013). She is co-founder of the publishing initiative Kayfa ta, co-head of Berlinale’s Forum Expanded, member of the Academy of the Arts of the World (Cologne), and co-artistic director of Singapore Biennale 2022.
