Khaled Barakeh

Khaled Barakeh is a Berlin-based conceptual artist and cultural activist. He graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus, Syria in 2005, completed his MFA at Funen Art Academy in Odense, and a Meisterschuler study at the St√§delschule Art Academy in Frankfurt. Driven by his observations of longstanding social injustice, Barakeh approaches creative practice as a tool for societal change; manipulating commonplace visual and cultural touchstones to expose and undermine stagnant power structures. Barakeh has exhibited at K√ľnstlerhaus Stuttgart, The 11th Shanghai Biennale, The Frankfurter Kunstverein, Artspace New Zealand, The Busan Biennale, and MKG Hamburg, among many others.
