Chiraz Mosbah, Interior designer. Teaching design at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Sousse.

Integrate Tasawar Curatorial Studios for two reasons:

Personal reason: to participate and organise more exhibitions in Tunisia and abroad

Professional reason: to be part of instructors’ team for a new master in “Curatorial practice and Art exhibition” at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Sousse.



My passion for art started with my first exploration of the traditional city of Tunis.

My art productions are related to photography, cinema, scenography and installations showed in different countries.

The inspirations are taken from everything I see, live and feel in my surrounding society. My engaged work tends to focus on a critical thinking of social, cultural, ritual and political issues inviting the viewer to meditate. I try to interpret/reflect familiar concerns from people’s daily life, by using a variety of materials and processes.

An important aspect of my work is the interaction with people, familiar/unfamiliar with arts, and I often utilise non-conventional spaces for my artworks (rubbles, corridors, toilets…).

I try to create an art for each mental viewer to share thoughts/opinions far from the received ideas of our educational system, something to change a persons’ perception, a way to resist to extinction.

I was member of Amateur Cinematographers Association in Tunisia and I had contributed to the completion of several short films that participated in national/international festivals and won many awards. I had organized personal/group photography exhibitions, in Tunisia, France, Spain and Bahrain. I had participated in the festivals of foreign artists in Paris through a series of installations and had organized cultural events in Tunisia and France. I was the founder of a Contemporary Art Society, Paris. I was appointed as juror of international photo competitions in Tunisia, as well as expert at the 7th session of Ta’a-Alshabab Festival in Bahrain.
