Yishay Garbasz

Yishay Garbasz (she/her) is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist. Her work explores the culturally specific inheritance of traumatic memories, driven by her desire to see the most problematic parts of humanity and to use her practice to disentangle them. By working with marginalized communities and in areas affected by war and disaster, she engages in a continual process of making the invisible visible, making the unsightly tenderly seen. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries and museums internationally including Tokyo, Seoul, New York, Miami, Boston, Berlin, Paris, London, and at the Busan Biennale. Two monographs were published on her work, the first of which was nominated for Deutsch photo book prize. She received numerous awards and is featured in Phaidon’s new book Great Women Artists. www.yishay.com
