Born in Jordan and raised between Texas and the Middle East, Tanya Habjouqa has earned a reputation for documentary that brings politics and creative vision into the same frame. With a focus on gender, identity, and socio-political issues in the Middle East, there is always a layer of gravitas and an intuitive sense of metaphor beneath her work. Habjouqa takes on a series-based approach, immersed in research and interlaying journalistic, academic, conceptual and documentary practices. In recent years, her projects have been commended by the likes of World Press Photo, TIME, and the Smithsonian. She is a mentor for the “Arab Photography Documentary Program” and teaches workshops internationally.

Marijn Kuijper (they/them) is a visual artist who takes their personal life as the starting point for their work. Marijn doesn’t care much for labels and refuses to fit into them. Their work is about navigating the patriarchy as a queer person, having a trans body, being a parent in a non-conforming family and having relationships with multiple partners. With their work, Marijn wants to stretch people’s ideas of what is perceived as normal and acceptable when it comes to relationships, family and bodily autonomy.
