Zineb Sedira

Born 1963 in Paris, Zineb Sedira lives in London and works between Algiers, Paris and London. Her work focuses on social and political evolutions in modern societies and issues of displacement and memory in contemporary history. Highlighting her specific interest in archives and in the collecting, recording and transmission of histories, her work has frequently been identified with post-colonial issues and in particular with her family history.
