Meet the Author
Ahmed Al-Aqra is an architect, artist, and researcher currently pursuing his doctoral studies at the Université de Paris after receiving his BA from Birzeit University and his MA from Edinburgh University in architecture and urbanism. He works on investigating and devising emancipatory spatial tools by tracing the daily life practices of the inhabitants in extraterritorial and extrajudicial geographies, using a multidisciplinary approach that combines art, philosophy, and architecture. Al-Aqra co-founded the Fana collective, which adopts the idea of deconstruction as a first step towards a more contextual cultural and spatial production. In addition, he has curated and co-curated several exhibitions in Palestine and abroad. His latest exhibition, People by the sea, was shown at the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit.
