Anahita Razmi

April-May 2024

Anahita Razmi (*1981 in Hamburg) lives and works in Berlin and London. She is a visual artist working with installation, moving image, photography, objects, and performance. Often using her German Iranian background as a reference, her practice explores contextual, geographical, and ideological shifts – with a focus on shifts between an ‘East’ and a ‘West’. She is interested in a fluid, transcultural approach to contemporary art and its histories & references – and in work that is producing testing grounds for possibilities of import/export, hybrid identities, and the constructions & ambiguities of cultural representation.

Her works were exhibited in international institutions like Museo Jumex, Mexico City, Halle 14, Leipzig, Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art, Tehran, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, The National Art Center, Tokyo, and Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. Among other grants and scholarships, Razmi received a Kulturakademie Tarabya Fellowship (2021), the Goethe at LUX Residency, London (2018).

 

During her residency at philomena+, she presents the project Darookhaneh Apotheke Pharmacy, in collaboration with Sohrab Kashani.
