Arab Documentary Photography Program
Btihal Remli is a Moroccan Photographer born in 1987 in Germany. She studied in Germany, Portugal and Austria and graduated with a Master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Since then she has been working on photographic projects. Her work is inspired by questions on spatial, social and religious identity.
The motivation for her work is a deep examination of her culture and origins in Morocco and their clash with her German identity, which are contrary. As a result, social issues and questions arise. Her photography is a tool and method to understand and at the same time communicate her point in this debate.
Her work has been exhibited in Austria, Italy, Hungary, Germany, UAE, Switzerland, and Morocco. Btihal Remli is represented by VOICE Gallery in Marrakech.
