dr. Benny Nemer is a multidisciplinary artist, diarist and researcher with twenty-five years of professional practice working with sound, performance, video, participatory gestures, photography, epistolary writing, and flowers. His work has explored and addressed diverse themes over the years, with enduring concern for the language of love and relation, queer archives, flowers as artistic material, the voice as conductor of affect and identity, and artistic interventions into museum mediation practice. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is part of the permanent collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, the Polin Museum for the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Thielska Galleriet Stockholm and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, among others.

Nemer holds a PhD in studio practice and queer culture from the Edinburgh College of Art. His postdoctoral research at KASK & Conservatorium focuses on queer kinship, artistic responses to AIDS, monuments and memorials, postcards as an artistic medium, and the archive of French author and photographer Hervé Guibert (1955-91). Nemer is a passionate and engaged practice mentor, able to accompany and advise practices in diverse disciplines. His research and experience make him especially suited to feminist and queer artistic work, as well as practices that engage with archives, the botanical world, ephemeral gestures, activism, the human voice, gender and sexuality, choreography, phenomenology, and the sensual world.
