Anahita Razmi is a visual artist working with moving image, photography, installation, and performance. Often using her own German-Iranian heritage as a reference, her transcultural artistic practice is exploring contextual, geographical, and ideological shifts - producing testing grounds for possibilities of import/export, hybrid identities, and the constructions and ambiguities of cultural representation.
Razmi’s works were exhibited in international institutions like Museo Jumex, Mexico City, Halle 14, Leipzig, Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Austria, Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art, Tehran, Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany, The National Art Center, Tokyo, Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, Germany, and in international biennials like the 7th Cannakale Biennale, the 55th Venice Biennale, and the 5th Bucharest Biennale.
Among other grants and scholarships, Razmi received the Tarabya Cultural Academy Fellowship, Istanbul (2020), the Goethe at LUX Residency, London (2018), the MAK-Schindler Scholarship, Los Angeles (2013) and The Emdash Award, Frieze Foundation, London (2011).
Her work is included in several international collections like the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, the Museo Novecento, Florence and Davis Museum at Wellesley College, USA.
Since 2018, Anahita Razmi also teaches within the BA Fine Arts (4D Pathway) at Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design, London/UK.
