Sabine El Chamaa is a Lebanese filmmaker currently in the finishing stages of an Audio Visual PhD at Goldsmiths, University of London’s Media and Communications department. Her research started as a personal documentary filmed during 2006’s war on Lebanon, analysing 24/7 live war media coverage from the perspective of a citizen residing in a city being bombed, by means of a film-based installation and a theoretical text.

Maria Kheirkhah is an artist, curator and lecturer, and a second year PhD candidate at University of the Arts, Chelsea College of Art & Design. The focus of Maria’s research is to investigate the ‘female Oriental Other’ as perceived historically within Western social discourses and the extent to which this perception projects / impacts upon her voice and representation within contemporary visual culture today.

Maria will be focusing on performative practices:  Portraits of a Belly Dancer, and Strategies of Identification and Resistance.
