Selma Selman (b. 1991) is from Bosnia and Herzegovina and is of Romani origin. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2014 from Banja Luka University’s Department of Painting. In 2018 she graduated from Syracuse University with a Master of Fine Arts in Transmedia, Visual and Performing Arts. Selman is part of the two years Rijksacademie program in Amsterdam. In her artworks, the ultimate aim is to protect and enable female bodies and enact a cross-scalar approach to the collective self-emancipation of oppressed women. Selma’s search for functional, contemporary political resistance stems from her personal experience with oppression from various directions and scales. Selman is also the founder of the organization ”Get The Heck To School”, which aims to empower Roma girls worldwide who faced ostracization from society and poverty. Selma Selman currently lives and works in Bihac, BIH, Amsterdam, HOL and New York, USA.
