Photo Nirit Peled Creator Biography Photo Nirit Peled Nirit Peled is an independent documentary filmmaker and artist. She has a special interest in public space, particularly in relation to new technologies and new social and political movements. In her practice she conducts visual research on storytelling, which first translated into performative acts like designing video-based installations and VJing in clubs, but she has gradually rejected art spaces to turn her attention towards public space. In recent years, Nirit has directed her own documentary films (Say My Name, 2009; Superjoden, 2013) and worked for Dutch broadcaster VPRO’s Tegenlicht (since 2014). She also teaches a course on new forms of storytelling at Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.
