Hosting on-site afternoons of conversations, Anahita Razmi and Sohrab Kashani will extend the opening hours of “Darookhaneh Apotheke Pharmacy” at philomena+.


Enabling the „darookhaneh“ which translates as „the home for cure“, the space is held open to discuss current urgencies affecting the WANA region and its diasporic communities, with a focus on questions of health access and inequality.


Sohrab Kashani (*1989 in Tehran) is a Rotterdam-based artist working primarily with installation, film, and performance. His work often explores themes of space, body, and perception. Sohrab Kashani assumes the persona of Super Sohrab, an alter-ego superhero who employs satire and the embrace of failure as tools to navigate the complexities of everyday life. Sohrab Kashani also runs Sazmanab, a curatorial platform that once operated as an art space and residency programme in Tehran and is currently based in the Netherlands. His recent collaborations and duo exhibitions include Darookhaneh Apotheke Pharmacy at uqbar projectspace in Berlin (2022) and The Other Apartment at Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh, US (2019-2020).


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).
