Lina Hashim
Born 1978 in Kuwait City – based in Copenhagen.
A recurrent theme in Hashim’s practice is the investigation and exposure of aspects of Islam that are usually concealed from the public. Her investigations are in no way blasphemous, but are part of a critical, nuanced dialogue with religion. Hashim has said: “If Islam is a play, I want to show what goes on backstage.” In her investigations, Hashim has a two-pronged perspective on Islam: on the one hand, as a woman raised in Islam; on the other hand, as a critical viewer.
Lina Hashim graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2020.
