Mansoora’s ongoing conceptual photographic video projects, ‘The Black Burqa: 9/11′, ‘Afghan Burqa: Begging for Peace’ and ‘Bound/Unbound’ depict the current global landscape. The artist uses the projects to take apart stereotypes. These are not comfortable works and are fraught with unanswered questions, said Saleema Hashmi, a former National College of Arts principal. Mansoora, who was born in Peshawar, received her Masters in Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute, New York.
