Aida Šehović on “ŠTO TE NEMA”

Aida Šehović is a current artist-in-residence at LMCC Arts Center. Aida is a Bosnian born artist based in New York. Combining ritual and politics, Šehović uses the mechanism of social engagement to address her own cultural heritage and history.

Aida is the founder of ŠTO TE NEMA – an annual nomadic monument to the victims of the Srebrenica genocide organized every July 11th with local communities in each host city since 2006.

Currently, Aida is reading for one hour at 12 PM every day from "Forty Rules of Love" by Elif Shafak. Follow @aida_sehovic and watch her Instagram Story to listen to the full hour daily!

LMCC's Arts Center artists-in-residence are exploring themes of social justice/social practice, NYC Harbor, Governors Island history, and climate change.
