Residency Period
September 27 – November 16, 2022

Ethopian based photographer and filmmaker Terhas Berhe focuses on the everyday as well as on social issues. In her work, she looks critically at notions of documentary storytelling.

She has been working and traveling inside and outside of Ethiopia. She got her first camera when accompanying her father on his truck tour to Djibouti. Since then, she captures her world and creates deep connections wherever seh goes. Terhe Berhas is interested in the long-term processes working with other forms such as photography, video, and performing art to trouble her narratives. 

She deeply believes, that every human being has a powerful story to share, if we give them the time and space.
