Saddie Choua

is a visual artist, documentary filmmaker and writer based in Brussels. By creating a bridge between art and her own academic background, Choua creates politically inspired work, breaks through the (visual) language of media and confronts the exoticism and sexism that are often evoked in the pseudo-reality around us. Her goal is not to tell other stories but to create ‘situations’ through which the reader/viewer may discover the underlying power mechanisms that determine our media culture. In her documentaries, video installations, mixed media collages and short stories, Choua highlights racial/ethnic discrimination, discrimination against women, colonialism, class and her cats.
