Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński is a writer, artist, and scholar. Rooted in Black feminist theory, she has developed a research-based and process-oriented practice that often deals with archives, specifically with the voids in them. Interlacing the documentary with the fictional, her works manifest themselves through a variety of media and dissect the present of an everlasting colonial past: a past without closure. In the context of her PhD-in-Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna she is working on the project The Non-Human. The Believer. The Alien – Unsettling Innocence, which confronts three scenes from Austrian history with Black studies in order to think about the performativity of Blackness in relation to Austrian coloniality. In 2016, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński was awarded the Theodor Körner Prize for Art for the project Naming What Was Once Unnameable, which deals with childhood and the experience of otherness.
