Lida Abdul was born in Kabul in 1973. She received a BA in political science in 1997 and a BA in philosophy in 1998 from California State University, Fullerton, and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine, in 2000. Abdul fled Afghanistan with her family following the Soviet invasion in 1979, and lived as refugee in India and Germany before immigrating to the United States. Based on this experience, Abdul considers herself a nomadic artist, and her films, videos, and installations are permeated with themes of cultural identity, migration, and the processes of destruction and displacement that have marked Afghanistan’s recent history.
