Samra Šabanović (b. Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a visual artist based in Helsinki.
Her work addresses everyday occurrences of photography and the issues pertaining to its use in the politics of exhibiting practices, public spaces and particularly its relation to texts. Samra has been mostly working with photography and combining it with text, video and performative narrative. Her interests oscillate between philosophy in photography and politics: the right to be, human dignity, both love and inaccessibility in images.
Samra graduated from Academy of Arts in Novi Sad and holds a Master degree in Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art from Aalto University. Currently she is working on short films as a participant of Academy of Moving People and Images and co-curating "I was there but you didn't see me".
