Marwa Arsanios considers practices in agriculture and farming as the starting point of her research. She has investigated communal farming practices by eco-feminist groups in places such as northern Syria. This resulted in the production of two films, presented as a video installation in this year’s Sharjah Biennial 14. Arsanios’s research for the triennial expands to communities in Colombia and Mexico, and is in line with her overall practice, which focuses on gender and politics in relation to industrialisation and urban development.
