Munem Wasif

Munem Wasif is a Dhaka based artist who investigates complex social and political issues by getting close to people, both physically and psychologically, dealing with multiple questions and contradictions through his artistic language, which often employs stark black and white photography. Wasif often experiments beyond tradition and tests the possibilities of fiction, while still using familiar documentary language. His interests lie with the concept of ‘documents’ and ‘archives’ and their corresponding influence on politically and geographically complex issues. Teaching and collaborating with a new generation of artists is a part of his own practice. Wasif's work has been exhibited by Musée de l'Élysée, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Palais de Tokyo, Victoria and Albert museum, Whitechapel Gallery, Chobi Mela, Dhaka Art Summit, and many other leading international institutions.
