Anahita Razmi

Anahita Razmi is a visual artist living in Berlin and London. She studied media art at the Bauhaus University Weimar and the Pratt Institute New York as well as fine art/sculpture at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart. Her cross-media work explores possibilities of import/export and contextual displacement as an artistic strategy. She explores spaces for hybrid identities as well as questions about constructions of cultural representation and visual memory through her often extensive, transcultural projects.

Anahita Razmi’s work has been shown internationally, including at Museo Jumex, Mexico City, Halle14, Leipzig, Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art, Tehran, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, National Art Center Tokyo, and Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. Razmi has also received numerous grants and awards, such as the Goethe at LUX Residency, London (2018), the Erich Hauser Foundation Workshop Award (2015), the MAK-Schindler Fellowship, Los Angeles (2013) and the Emdash Award, Frieze Foundation, London (2011). Since 2018, she has also been a Lecturer in BA Fine Art (4D Pathway) at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.

Anahita Razmi was a resident at the Tarabya Cultural Academy from April to May 2021 and was again on site as part of an extension from December 2021 to January 2022.
