Hristina Tasheva (b. 1976) is a visual storyteller and a researcher from Bulgaria, based in the Netherlands. She studied Photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and earned her Master Photography at AKV | St. Joost, Breda, the Netherlands. As an Eastern European living in Western Europe, migration, identity, and belonging have been central themes in her work. Using photography, text, and performance, Tasheva develops most of her projects in photo book format.


Her last publication "Far Away From Home: The Voices, the Body and the Periphery" investigates the questions of what it means to be a communist today or to define yourself as one and how the interpretation of history and politics of remembering influence the forming of our identities and our view on the future? In 2023 the book was nominated for the Photobook of the Year Paris Photo-Aperture Photobook Award, the Photo-Text Book Award of Les Rencontres de la Photographie, and the Photobook Award of Encontros da Imagem.


The lecture is held in English and open to the public.
