Reyhaneh Mirjahani is an artist and artistic researcher based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Her artistic practice and research focuses on the notion of individual and collective agency in dilemmatic socio-political situations and the disposition of ethics in this discourse. Moreover, she is interested in understanding and challenging the role of art and artists in communicating the issues we face in contemporary life, as well as finding intersectional methods within sociology, politics and art to facilitate or mediate a space in which the complexity of contemporary politics can be discussed. She has collaborated with various institutions in Iran, Italy, Poland, UK and Sweden, and been published in critical journals in Iran, Sweden and the UK.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Reyhaneh has been engaged with research and writing about social engaged art, physical presence and sensory experiences which have been published in critical journals in Iran, Sweden and the UK.
