Yasmin Jahan Nupur (b. 1979)
Yasmin works primarily with expressions such as installations, painting and performance. In her art, she explores issues of social justice and norms, and how these affect different groups in society. Yasmin often uses object that tells a story, items connected with mythology, iconographic symbolism or associated with specific ideas or memories. During the last two decades, she has been involved in shaping Bangladesh´s artscene in relation to the social and political changes in the country, which is also reflected in her art.
Suvra Kanti Das (b. 1979)
Suvra previously worked as an engineer for many years before deciding to change carrier path, and has since 2012 worked full time as a photographer. His work refer to genres within black humour, romance and symbolism. Suvra often highlights problems such as conflict, political unrest, environmental disasters and social injustice. The constant confrontation with difficult situations and human suffering has forced Suvra to realize how life extends beyond fear and aversion.
Munem Wasif (b. 1983)
Munem is an acclaimed artist, filmmaker and photographer, with a humanistic focus on social and political issues in Bangladesh. He examines complex problems by approaching people, both physically and psychologically. He often portrays the lives of workers, from stonemasons to textile workers, as well as the complexity of identity and religion. Munem experiments with video, sound and various photographic strategies, while still using a documentary imagery. Munem has in his latest work, Kheyal, that will be shown at Färgfabriken, created a narrative of stories from and of the old Dhaka.
