Yousra Razine Mahrah
graduate of ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem


Yousra Razine Mahrah, graduated from ArtEZ University of the Arts, was selected by the Dutch jury to participate in Lichting 2023.

K*TMAROKKAAN: Yousra emerged from a restrictive Moroccan upbringing, crafting a false family persona to navigate diverse daily settings, stirring both confusion and strength. Her identity weaves through four conflicting “worlds” as a Moroccan woman: sensual lingerie against parental modesty, Berber goat skin traditions, and Dutch-imposed stereotypes. With an artful fusion, Yousra embraces these contrasts, melding not only concepts but also harsh textures with delicate fabrics, creating a dynamic tension.
