Azin Seraj

Through video and mixed-media installation, Azin Seraj grapples with the cultural and ideological contradictions inherent to the experience of a transnational artist. Using art, activism, and citizen journalism, she bridges genres and disciplines, bringing her ruptured worlds together to create an interdisciplinary discourse on the current international political climate of violence and enmity. The product of extensive research into Middle Eastern and Western colonial histories, her social practice artworks make use of citizen journalism, raising awareness of international political issues and connecting viewers with existing activist networks in order to foster concrete change.
