Raeda Saadeh is a photographer, performance and installation artist, whose works are collected by several public institutions in Europe, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Saadeh was born in 1977 in Umm Al Fahm, Palestine and lives in Jerusalem, and a recurring character in her work is a woman living under occupation – both physical and psychological. She could be called the Cindy Sherman of the Middle East, as she uses her body as the basis for her art, designing the costumes and playing the characters.
