Sarah Shamash’s research creation practice is committed to decolonial, feminist critique and action; it encompasses film, art, writing, curation, and education. Her artworks comprise the use of media in a wide variety formats such as installation, documentary, photography, sound, performance, and video. They have been shown in curated exhibitions and film festivals internationally. Her work as an artist, researcher, educator, and programmer can be understood as interconnected and whole; they all revolve around a passion for cinema as a pluriversal technology of knowledge.
