Ola Hassanain



About the Speaker

Ola Hassanain leads a critical spatial practice as a visual artist with architecture training. Ola premises her work on the idea of “space as political discourse,” an expanded notion of space that aims to develop a spatial literacy, aiding us in imagining different political ecologies. Ola’s development of critical spatial practice is partly informed by her post-academic training, which includes an ongoing Rijksakademie residency, a BAK fellowship 2017-2018, teaching and development of the Blackerblackness Master course Sandberg Instituut 2021- 2023, and teaching at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht at the Fine Art Department. In 2019, she was also part of the Chicago Architecture Biennale and the Sharjah Architecture Triennale.
