Samir Harb

Samir Harb was born 1981 in Ramallah/Palestinian territories. He is an architect/cartoonist and has been working in the field of architecture and landscape planning in the West Bank since 2006. Harb’s project focuses on the idea to re-construct the meta-narrative in complex spatial orders. While architecture serves as the body of research in which the territorial, spatial networks, economical and political transformations are saturated. The graphic novel acts as a practice of reordering and shifting between things, events, dialogs, accounts, and archival material. Harb graduated from the Department of Architectural Engineering at Birzeit University in Ramallah in 2006. He finished his studies in 2011 with a Master’s degree in arts at Goldsmiths College in London/United Kingdom. Currently Harb is a PhD candidate in Human Georgraphy at University of Manchester.
