Taous R. Dahmani is a London-based French, British and Algerian art historian, writer and curator specialising in photography. Her academic research focuses on the photographic representation of struggles and the struggle for photographic representations. Her projects mainly involve the links between photography and politics – such as the visual culture of protests, migratory narratives and intersectional feminist discourses. She has been published in various scientific journals and regularly gives papers in academic conferences. She also writes for art magazines and is frequently invited to hold ‘in-conversations’ with photographers.
Dahmani is Editor for The Eyes magazine, a trustee of the Photo Oxford Festival and on the editorial board of MAI: Visual Culture and Feminism. She was the 2022 curator of the Louis Roederer Discovery Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles.
She joined LCC (UAL) as an Associate Lecturer in January 2023
