In The Studio


Bijan Moosavi (b.1983, Iran) is an Iranian multi-media artist based in London. He makes films, music, performances and installations which look at the implications of the expansion of neo-liberalism in the Middle East. His work draws upon the aesthetics of corporate advertising, sci-fi movies, popular culture and the Islamic kitsch in order to tell dystopian tales of a fully neo-liberal Middle Eastern future. These stories demystify the myth that the only way towards democracy and freedom in the Middle East is through the liberation of the market. Bijan lives and works in London, UK.
