Aimée Zito Lema. 13 Shots

The work of Aimée Zito Lema (Amsterdam, 1982) addresses the dynamics between individual and collective memory, with a particular focus on the recording and intergenerational transmission of events, both through material history and through the human body as a mnemonic repository. Placing aesthetic and social practices side by side, her work inhabits a world of critical interaction between the material and the human.

Who is Ella?

Ahlam Shibli (1970, Palestine) is a Palestinian photographer whose work, indeed documentarist, can be seen as a reportage, yet not so dramatic. What follows is the result of an interview conducted with her: a reflection around issues of power and coexistence, as they are portrayed through her series “Trackers” (2005) where she pictured Palestinians of Bedouin descent, who made the choice to enrol in the Israeli Defence Force.
