Meine sieben Tanten

“Meine sieben Tanten” or “My seven aunts” is a documentation, an installation and a series of self-portraits, exhibited in January 2020 in Abir Kobeissi’s own apartment in Munich, as a part of an exhibition that was mainly about redrawing the lines of our intimate daily spaces.

Growing up having 7 aunts on her mother’s family side, has contributed to how the artist sees herself as a human being and especially as woman of her society.

Questions related to femininity , fertility, social roles, were being answered in front of her eyes since she grew up witnessing 8 stories , with the one of her own mother. This is when Kobeissi decides to make her own.
