Eszter Biró is an artist and researcher who gained her PhD at Glasgow School of Art.

Her doctoral research Beyond The Memory (2015-2019) focuses on storytelling on family photographs exploring methods of excavation of hidden and silenced painful pasts through archival strategies, material re-enactments and reactivation. Her projects Fragments (2013) and Recipebook (2015) investigate how private memory entangles with historical events;

asking how the diverse subjective voices could shift and change fixed historical narratives?
