Anahita Razmi is a German Iranian visual artist working with moving image, photography, installation, and performance. Her transcultural artistic practice often deploys strategies of appropriation and contextual displacement – aiming to deconstruct relations between image & power and identity & representation.

Among other prizes and residencies, Razmi received a residency at Tarabya Cultural Academy, Istanbul (2020/2023), the Goethe at LUX Residency, London (2018), the MAK-Schindler Scholarship, Los Angeles (2013) and The Emdash Award, Frieze Foundation, London (2011).
Anahita Razmi was a resident at the Tarabya Cultural Academy in Istanbul from April to May 2021 and again from December 2021 to January 2022.
