Amina Zoubir is a visual artist, director and video art curator. She lives and works between Paris and Algiers.

After completing an art degree (DESA) in Graphic Design, in 2006, at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts of Algiers, in 2009 she graduated with a Masters in Theory and Practice of Contemporary Art and New Media, from Paris 8 University.


Her videos and photographs question the notion of (female) body language and its reflection in the urban space of the world, specifically North African and Arabic. In 2012, she carried out six performances in the urban space of Algiers, entitled “Take Your Place,” for the web documentary “A summer in Algiers.”


Her work has been shown at several international events, Torrance Museum in California; the Pink Gallery, Seoul; the Artos Foundation, Cyprus; the TAC, Eindhoven; the Palazzo Leonardo d’ Arte Contemporanea, Turin; the Tangier Cinématéque; the 13th Biennial of the young Mediterranean and European creators, in Bari, and the 30th Biennial of contemporary art in Pontevedra. She also curated many video art exhibitions, in Algeria and France.

As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. After Asia, Europe and the American continent, the African continent sees the Covid19 epidemic coming with great concern, given the limited health infrastructures available in some countries.


All the AAD teams wish to give their warm support to the artists, professionals, partners and volunteers involved in our projects throughout Africa.


We have preventively taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our activities in the field in order to participate in the security of all and to try stop the spread of the virus on the continent.


As we know today, the speed of implementation of measures to protect people on a collective scale is critical in the future fight against the impact of this virus.


In these times of containment, you can find some of our projects and keep in touch on :
