Artist and filmmaker
Khaled Jarrar (PS, b. 1976) is a Palestinian artist and filmmaker living in Ramallah. He received a BA in Visual Arts from the International Academy of Art in Palestine. He uses his artistic practice to consider questions of conflict, nationhood, home and belonging. Through highly symbolic photographs, videos and performative interventions, he explores modern power struggles and their sociocultural impact on ordinary citizens. The notion of state authority is a recurring concern as are the issues surrounding the recognition of the State of Palestine and the militaristic discourse around it. He is the director of the award-winning documentary The Infiltrators. His work has been widely exhibited at solo and group exhibitions and in film festivals in Europe, the USA and the Middle East.
