Ola Hassanain

Born in Khartoum and living in Utrecht, Ola Hassanain's work examines women's experiences with regard to gender and public space in the Sudanese capital Khartoum. In recent years she developed the idea of "space as discourse", and the way in which the concept of space encompasses political and environmental issues. How outside is a concept that is not a permanent space, but is only determined by political events and moments, such as the pandemic, for example. In doing so, she immerses herself in the concepts of possession and property as exclusion frameworks, as well as in the politics of state terror, in which the idea of order is linked to the establishment of an outside.
