Jasmine is an internationally exhibiting visual artist from the USA, located in Berlin since 2014. Coming from diverse art hubs New York and Istanbul, she’s cultivated a special relationship with Germany and Berlin, a city she sees as a critical locus in the panoply of creative capitals. Finding inspiration through learning and sharing knowledge in social settings, she's recently offered workshops for artists through the BBK in Berlin, and for art students at L’Institut Supérieur des arts de Toulouse, and TU Technische Universität, Dortmund. She has also worked as an instructor in schools and museums throughout Istanbul and the United States. Her favorite way to learn about a country and its people is through experiencing art and architecture, discovering the stories that act to create collective cultural identities.
