Khaled Jarrar

1976 born in Jenin, Palestine, and lives and works in Ramallah, Palestine. 

Khaled Jarrar's work explores modern power struggles and their sociocultural impact on ordinary citizens. He completed his studies in interior design at the Palestine Polytechnic University in 1996, and began working in photography. He garnered significant attention for his exhibition in 2004 at the Howarra and Qalandya checkpoints where his photos were displayed to attract the attention of Israeli soldiers. He began working in the mediums of film and video. His first short video "Journey 110" was critically acclaimed and selected at several international festivals and art galleries, including Basel Art 41, Instant Video, and the London Film Festival.

In 2011 he graduated from the International Academy of Art (Palestine). His recent work "Live and Work in Palestine" was the first unofficial Palestinian stamp. Khaled used it to stamp passports of people from all nationalities who volunteered. The everyday objects appearing in Jarrar’s reflective work, whether by their shape or nature, are juxtaposed with the severity of the issues he examines, giving the political content of his art greater significance while underscoring the autobiographical nature of his themes.
