Dor Guez is a Jaffa-based artist and an educator. He was born in Jerusalem to a Palestinian family from Lydda on his mother's side and a family of Jewish immigrants from North Africa on his father's. Guez's practiceincludes photography, video, installations, sculpture, and lecture- performances. As an artist, archivist, and curator, Guez explores the relationship between art, narrative, memory, and displacement through his work. Interrogating personal experiences and official accounts of the past, Guez raises questions about contemporary art's role in narrating unwritten histories and re-contextualizing visual and written documents. In the past 20 years, his studies and artistic work focus on archival materials and photographic practices of the Middle East and North Africa, as well as mapping traces of violence in the landscape. Guez’s latest overview, Catastrophe, at the Museum of Modern Art Bogota, spans a wide range of works showcasing the artist's committed engagement with his community and the ever-unfolding studies of his region.

Guez was educated as both an artist and an archivist. He received his Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 2014 and earned his professorship from Bezalel Academy of the Arts and Design in 2018. He is the founder of the CPA (Christian-Palestinian Archive), the Chief Curator of the Bezalel Gallery of Contemporary Art, and the Director of Seaport: Mediterranean Curatorial Residency Program.

To date, eight catalogues have been published internationally about Guez's practice. Publishers include Distanz, New England Press, and A.M Qattan Foundation.
