New Radicalisms

Isshaq Albarbary

Isshaq Albarbary's work engages the relation between art, statelessness, and extraterritoriality. His research-based practice deals with authenticity, imitations, camouflage, anonymity, normalization, and naturalization. Albarbary, born in 1988 in Beit Jibrin refugee camp, Palestine, currently lives and works between Amsterdam and Bethlehem. He holds a Master of Fine Art and Design from HKU, Utrecht, and is presently a member of Urban Front. Albarbary was a 2017/2018 fellow at BAK (basis voor actuele kunst), and previously a participant and coordinator of Campus in Camps. He is a founding member of Al Maeishah Collective. Albarbary has shown his work (carried out collaboratively) at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and the Serralves Museum in Porto. His work has been included in the São Paulo Biennial, the Qalandya International in Palestine, documenta 14 in Kassel, and the Chicago Architecture Biennial. Albarbary was an artist-in-residence at (A)WAKE in 2021. During his residency, Albarbary investigated the making of identification cards for “stateless” subjects and the language of statecraft.
