deebia@mail.montclair.edu

Aissa Deebi is visual artist and a scholar based in New York and Genève. His early work investigates the complexity of daily practices in post-1948 Palestine: "Days Like This" (1997); "Makkan" (1998); "My Dream House" (1999); "Nothing is New, Only Forgotten" (2000). Later, Dr. Deebi’s work tackled the theme of immigration and alienation, which culminated into his PhD research, providing critical analysis of Arab Diaspora as a creative space. In tandem with his scholarly work, he produced a body of works that interrogate the complex phenomena of cultural-migration Diaspora reality as experienced by an adult Palestinian-American artist in post-9/11 America: "Killing Time" (2004); "Naked Heroes" (2003); "Dead Sweet" (2004) "Tal El Samak" (2011).  Most recently, in 2013, Dr. Deebi’s work, the Trial, was exhibited at the Venice Biennale 55.

Dr. Deebi held several positions teaching art and design at a number of institutions including the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton, in the United Kingdom, Centre de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey Design, Mexico and Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok Thailand. In 2010, he joined the American University of Cairo’s Arts Department as a Professor of Art and Design, teaching in the areas of studio arts, design practice, theory and photography. In 2011, he was appointed to become the Director of the Visual Cultures Program, which includes the visual arts-film and graphic design majors. Dr. Deebi revamped the Art Program’s curriculum and structure to reflect the contemporary art discourse both in research and in practice. Additionally, he was the Director of the Sharjah Art Gallery at the American University of Cairo.

He was a founding member of ArteEast in New York City, where he served as the first Director of the Visual Arts and Director of the Board. He is also a consultant on education for the Birzet University’s Museum in Palestine, and the curator of Mizna, the Arab American Art and Literature Magazine in Minneapolis, USA.

His work was exhibited across the globe from the 55th International Venice Biennale, and the Queens Museum of Art in New York to the Haus am Lutzowplatz in Berlin, in addition to the Asia-Pacific Triennial, Taipei in Taiwan, VCU Art Gallery in Doha, Elga Wimmer Gallery in New York, and Art in Dubai.

In 1998, he teamed up with Poissant Design Associates to develop products for Yahoo, Roots and Laser Therapeutics. That same year, he joined the faculty of Industrial Design at Humber College’s School of Applied Science in Toronto, and began to focus on building international connections and designing products for Swiss- and Hungarian-based manufacturers.

Klaus Schnitzer

Klaus Schnitzer, MFA
Professor
Area Head: Photography
Courses Taught: Photography
973-655-4320
schnitzerk@mail.montclair.edu

Klaus Schnitzer’s interest in photography began as an undergraduate working for the student newspaper, and continued as a graduate assistant for photography at SUNY Albany. Outstanding in his early work are black-and-white pictures of rock stars on stage, such as Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Bob Dylan. In 1976, he began a fertile collaboration with printmaker Robert Sennhauser in which they combined photographs with evocative texts. Most of the work was done in black and white and was especially memorable when he employed his beloved platinum technique. Color, rarely employed during his first 20 years as an artist, has given his more recent work – photographs of ordnance – a new, powerful dimension.

A genuine interest in cars fostered Prof. Schnitzer’s “other” career as an internationally renowned automotive photographer. Assignments take him all over the world and have resulted in books, more than 100 feature articles, and more than 110 cover photographs for national and international publications. His name appears on the mastheads of Bimmer, Sports Car International, Forza, and Roundel magazines.

Prof. Schnitzer’s exhibition career consists of more than 160 regional, national, and international shows. His work can be found in numerous private collections, as well as in the Museum of Modern Art, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, Ellis Island Immigration Museum, Polaroid International Collection, and BMW NA. Commercial clients include AMOCO, Bell Communications, Bentley Publishers, BMW Design News, KPMG Peat Marwick, Montclair Art Museum, and Newark Museum, among others. He is currently represented by ‘transtock’ (www.transtock.com), axiart.com, and the Forrest Scott Gallery.
