Amina Menia is interested in architecture as an archaeology of the culture and history of a city, as well as the symbolic territory for the frenzies of men and their desire for power. Recently, she has extended her research from heritage to more contemporary political and postcolonial topics.
Menia’s work has been exhibited both locally and internationally, including at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, Ireland (2013); National Museum of Carthage, Tunisia (2012); Cornerhouse, Manchester, UK (2011); Musée national d’art moderne et contemporain, Algiers (2010) and the Pontevedra Bienal, Spain (2008).
