The Egyptian artist Heba Y. Amin (1980) creates political and activist work concerning historical events. Amin engages with political themes, utilizing subversive methods.

Through archives and various media - including film, photography and installations - she criticises the narration of events in recent history. History, as we know it from books in Europe, is not a conclusive fact. Her works foreground alternative perspectives and parallel historiographies against dominant narratives
