Nahed Mansour’s works often combine video, performance, and installation. Most recently she has taken up notions of mimicry in popular entertainment, specifically producing work that speaks to physicality, performance, and power relations between generations, genders, and races. Working with personal, historic, and popular archives her works center on dancers and singers who become apertures for thinking about the ways in which racial identities are performed and negotiated in the globally hybrid post-colonial present. Her work aims to expose the ways the work of racialized bodies is often exploited for the entertainment of viewing publics.
