Zeynep Dagli is a London-based film-maker, editor and a visual artist with an academic background.
After completing her practice-based PhD in 2009 in Media, Communication and Culture (click here read), she has continued to make experimental short films (exhibited and projected internationally and in the UK) and been involved in an exciting array of works that entailed collaborating with disabled artists, performers, scriptwriters, musicians and sound designers; creating work for a wide range of audiences while keeping on researching, and publishing in an academic peer review journal (Click here for further reading on 'Transgressive Culture').
She has been interested in the negotiations and meditations of internal / external struggles, and traumatic experiences in relation to death, dying, suffering and madness. In her previous work she has researched, examined, speculated and/or analysed how dark and painful experiences have revealed themselves by way of reflection and in artistic formulation. It's been a personal journey as much as an academic one.
