Hanan Benammar (1989) is an Algerian and French artist based in Oslo who works conceptually on geopolitical, environmental and social issues. She holds an MA from the Academy of Fine-arts of Oslo (Norway) and a second MA from the Dutch Art Institute (The Netherlands). Benammar’s practice ranges between music, sound and video installation, performance, sculpture and art in public space. Many of her works are made on a long time period, dedicated to a process that will unfold on a life-time scale and repeat over time in different forms. 

She has exhibited and performed in numerous places. Lately at Bildmuseet (Umeå), Radikal Unsichtbar (Hamburg), Across the Golden Bridge (Reykjavík), BEK/Bergen Kjøtt (Bergen), Kunstnerforbundet (Oslo) and Le Cube (Rabat) among others. In 2018, she was also one of the co-authors and performers of the theatre play Ways of Seeing, which continues to have to this day unprecedented consequences on the Norwegian society and political landscape.
