New Radicalisms

Betina Abi Habib

Betina Abi Habib is a visual and performance artist born and raised in Lebanon and currently residing in the Netherlands. Her artistic practice, informed by architecture and performance, is mostly site-specific, scenographic, and script-based. The ‘sites’ which she intervenes in range from an empty theatre space, to a Google Street View, to a live stream of a political speech. Through her artistic practice, she is interested in digital culture and technologies as facilitators of antagonisms; being here and there, responding but not reaching, connecting yet staying apart. Betina was an artist-in-residence at (A)WAKE. During her residency, Betina explored methods of collaborative re-writing of a classical tragedy script, mediated through different digital media in order to bridge the geographical distance amongst her collaborators.
