Research Sites

Adel Abadin research example

I found Adel work refered to on this site

"My art practice is based on the premise that art produces arguments for the viewer. I started my art career as a painter, but two years ago, I abandoned painting to concentrate on media-based art. Nowadays, I do primarily videos, video installations and short films.The main topics I deal with are of a political nature. This is sometimes attributed to the fact that I am of Iraqi origin, but I believe we truly live in political times, regardless of geographical position, and art cannot thrive outside its social context."
