Mona Benyamin

Mona Benyamin is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Haifa. In her works, she explores intergenerational outlooks on hope, trauma and questions of identity, using humour and irony as political tools of resistance and reflection. Her recent works have been screened — among others — at MoMA, Another Gaze, Sheffield DocFest and Columbia University.

Mona Benyamin, Emily Jacir and Larissa Sansour discuss the role artists play in responding to the Israeli occupation, from building international solidarity to shifting language and creating new iconographies
