About the Artist
Hiwa K Lives and works between Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan and Berlin, Germany. Working across video, performance and installation, Hiwa’s work draws from personal experiences, including family anecdotes, his path through arts education, and daily encounters and occurrences. Many of his works stress collectivity and participation as part of their development, engaging with and critiquing teaching and learning systems and exploring how knowledge can be gleaned through everyday experience as much as through academic rigors.
