How I Create is an Unseen Platform video series delving into the creative process of artists' we love.
Up close and personal with artist Nadine Stijns and curator Amal Alhaag, we talk anarchist mentalities, national identities and cross-cultural collaborations. In the studio, Stijns opens a window on a wider world, interpreting oral traditions through visual media.

“We want to offer a more nuanced perspective of the region, providing a stage for Somalilanders to take ownership of their own image.“
“...archival photographs are essential for transmitting history and experience to new generations, because stories that contain images generate empathy, and will reach younger people in a more emotional way.“
“The simplicity in the forms and composition of my work is meant to create the ‘vacuum’ which is needed to rescue memories and images settled deep down in our subconscious, where archetypal forms lie.“
