Shahd Wadi is Palestinian among other possibilities, but the freedom is mostly Palestinian. She tries to find freedom also in what she does, travelling between research, translation, writing, curation and art consultancy. She sought her resistance through her PhD thesis in Feminist Studies at the University of Coimbra in Portugal, which was published in a book entitled “Bodies in a Bundle: Artistic-Life-Stories of Palestinian Women in Exile” (2017). She was the first in Portugal to receive a degree in this field. In her work she addresses the artistic body narratives in the context of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. She considers art a life testimony, also her own.
