Youcef Hadjazi is an Algerian born Artist currently based in Manchester. He graduated from the Manchester School of Art in 2017 and was awarded the MSoA Award. Youcef's work explores socio-political notions through photography, video and performance.
During his stay with Residency 11:11 Youcef Hadjazi is engaged in research exploring the visibility and under-representations of the North African and Arab diaspora working in the arts in London and beyond.
Though his main focus lies within North African and Arab (under)representations his research stretches to BAME and Queer art practitioners and their experiences as a whole.
During his residency period, he collects information and perceptions of various art practitioners to shape a discussion for his final event. For his event he will be inviting some of his research collaborators to discuss their experiences while conducting an open conversation.
This event is public and open to all.
