Rasha Salti is an independent curator and writer who is based in Beirut and works between New York, Paris and Toronto. She is currently a programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, and from 2004 to 2010 she was the film programmer and creative director of ArteEast in New York. Her research projects forge a critical model that rewrites hegemonic narratives by reflecting on artistic production in the Arab world.

SON[I]A talks to Rasha Salti about the methodology of unearthing images that she uses in her research, and about some of its repercussions. Her postcolonial analysis of artistic production in modernism favours new narratives about the former East and West. It also favours the reinterpretation of certain key dates for the creation, on both sides, of the dialectics of alterity and for the emergence of underlying leftist discourses. These discourses reveal another, hidden, story that can be traced through image production to the recent Arab springs.
