Dor Guez

Dor Guez interrogates personal and official accounts of the past through the lens of communities in the Middle East that are marginalized by the meta-narratives of both Palestinians and Israelis. His photographs, videos, and installations address gaps in the official narratives of the region while exploring contemporary art’s role in raising questions about history, nationality, ethnicity, and personal identity.

Dor Guez (b. Jerusalem), lives and works in Jaffa. He has had solo exhibitions at venues such as ICA, London; Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit; The Rose Art Museum, Boston; Artpace, San Antonio; The Mosaic Rooms: Centre for Contemporary Arab Culture, London; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Guez's work has been included in numerous international exhibitions and biennials including the 12th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul; 17th, 18th and 19th International Contemporary Art Festival, Videobrasil, São Paulo; 3rd Moscow International Biennale, Moscow; Biennale Bénin, Cotonou; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography; and MAXXI Museum, Rome. In 2009, Guez established the Christian Palestinian Archive and he also serves as Head of the Photography Department at the Bezalel School of Art and Design, Jerusalem.
