Dor Guez was born in Jerusalem to a Christian-Palestinian family on his mother’s side and a family of Jewish immigrants from North Africa on his father’s. He lives and works in Jaffa. Guez produces photography and video installations that explore the relationship between art, narrative, and memory, interrogating personal and official accounts of the past. Guez is among the leading critical and artistic voices of the Middle East whose practice raises questions about contemporary art’s role in narrating unwritten histories and re-contextualizing visual and written documents.
To date, eight catalogs have been published internationally about Guez's practice. Publishers include Distanz, New England Press, and A.M Qattan Foundation. Guez's work has been displayed in over thirty-five solo exhibitions worldwide and participated in numerous group exhibitions.
