London-based Algerian artist Zineb Sedira addresses the ways in which her identity is informed by religion, culture and gender by appropriating the traditionally male art form of Arabesque ceramic tiles in her installation, »Quatre générations de femmes«. In the video »Don't Do to Her What You Did to Me«, she represents the manner in which social forces impact identity in Diaspora.
