2020 Next Generation Prince Claus Laureate

Hira Nabi (Lahore, 1987)

Hira Nabi is a filmmaker and visual artist who examines the multiple elements of contemporary reality with political insight and poetic intensity. She explores in detail the local consequences of overarching issues such as globalisation and environmental degradation, boldly contrasting harsh fact, inventive narrative and lyrical imagery. Combining critical research and a personal aesthetic vision, she demonstrates the next generation’s ability to resist mass populism and reclaim individuality.
