Jumana Manna is a visual artist working primarily with film and sculpture who was raised in Jerusalem and lives in Berlin. Her recent projects have recomposed various archival materials that pertain to historical narratives of the Levant and northern Europe. These works have explored the ways in which economic, political, and interpersonal forms of power condition architectural sites as well as human and plant life. Manna received a BFA from the National Academy of Arts in Oslo and an MA in Aesthetics and Politics from California Institute of the Arts. She has participated in several film festivals and exhibitions around the world.
