As if, in that moment, the city embraces women

6 Sessions programmed by Arefeh Riahi

Arefeh Riahi, [1979 Tehran, lives and work in The Hague since 2012]
With a focus on the archive in the broadest sense of the concept, Arefeh’s artistic research explores non-archival and non-categorizable modes of knowledge-making. In her interdisciplinary practice she uses narrative and performance in search of potentials for ephemeral fictions; spaces of possibility informed by what is termed the anarchive. Anarchive, as a space of resistance, is a central idea in her current research.

Her work has been exhibited, among others, at ACC Galerie (Weimar) W139 Project space (Amsterdam), de Appel (Amsterdam), Rozenstraat (Amsterdam), REDCAT; Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (Los Angeles), The Peace Palace; The International Court of Justice (The Hague), Gemak (The Hague), Pratt Institute (Brooklyn), Cinema Museum (Tehran). She is a graduate of Azad University, Tehran, and Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague.
