Gulnur Mukazhanova

Residency Period
May-Jun 2022

Gulnur Mukazhanova currently lives and works in Berlin. She graduated from the Kazakh National Academy of Arts in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 2006 and completed her MA in Textile and Surface Design at the Weissensee School of Art and Design Berlin in Germany in 2013.

Her art is not only a confrontation of two different cultures but also a dialogue between them. Greatly influenced by her Central Asian roots, Mukazhanova utilises traditional materials that are not only used for their aesthetics but have a symbolic and historic significance. While living in Germany, she has been confronted by questions about feminism, globalisation and ethnology which have been examined in her work.
