Samra Šabanović

Samra Šabanović (b. 1992, Bosnia and Herzegovina) grew up in Sarajevo and moved to Helsinki for her master studies. She graduated in Fine Arts at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad and has obtained her MA in Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art at Aalto University. Samra has been mostly working with photography and combining it with text, video and performative narrative. Her interests oscillate between philosophy in photography and politics: the right to be, human dignity, both love and inaccessibility in

images. From 2019 she has been co-curating a series of research-based public interventions on images under the title “I was there but you didn’t see me.”
