Mounira Al Solh (Beirut, 1978) is a visual artist who draws, embroiders, paints, creates installations, magazines, and puts on performances. In her oeuvre, the personal is closely interwoven with the political. Through encounters and conversations with others, Al Solh investigates themes such as migration, identity, language, and feminism.
Here is a link to an interview with the artist by Hendrik Folkerts in 2018 at the Art Institute Chicago.
