Meet Mahdi Baraghithi



Mahdi Baraghithi works across a range of media including performance, installation, and collage. He explores and deconstructs the representation of masculinity and the male body in Arab societies, specifically in his own context of Palestine through his use of materials, such as found images and readymade objects.


Delving into the notions of the body, home, and the mundane through the manipulation of found images and texts, Baraghithi deconstructs images of the Arab man found in popular, national, and religious culture shedding light onto the different frameworks of social and political stereotypes inscribed onto the body, which contour definitions of manhood and acceptable forms of masculinity in society.
