Invitation to attend my Artistic PhD defence

On Thursday May 20, 2021
Email me for details

Across the Middle East and the rest of the world, historically and today, women have been essential to achieving political change. Without their participation, many revolutions would have failed. My PhD project revolves around the importance of women and the photographic representation and challenges thereof within the uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa. It culminates in a personal journey to my native Iran in search of my roots and my own story of a revolution.

Exhibition Freedom Is Not Free

At M HKA, Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp

My book Freedom Is Not Free is out!

Available in selected Art Book Shops

What does freedom mean? Through the lens of her camera and through a kaleidoscope of history of women in resistance, Mohadjerin put together a multidimensional work which takes the viewer on a dreamlike journey bound by neither space nor time. The art-book accompanies an exhibition focusing on the private and public world of Iranian women who grew up after the Revolution of 1979 and on places of significance from the artist’s childhood. Her works are part of an Artistic Doctoral Research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Antwerp, which started as a research on female freedom fighters and culminated in a very personal journey to her native Iran.

New Narratives | a guided tour with Mashid Mohadjerin

Every month we ask a guest speaker to add new stories (narratives) to the collection and exhibitions at FOMU. As a participant you are invited to think along about these new meanings and discuss them with one another. Each tour starts from the personal perspective of the guest speaker. The theme and approach is therefore always different.

When? Saturday 11 May, 2020, 16u30 – 17u30

Curated by Michiel Vandevelde
from 23-03-2018 to 1-07-2018

Western-European cities have become melting pots of different minority cultures. Yet the Western ‘Enlightened’ values still reign. As a possible tool of resistance against an all-consuming liberal ideology, Eating Each Other presents the strategy of ‘reappropriation’, by which dominant patterns of thought and behaviour are mixed with one’s own knowledge, customs and rituals to create something entirely new.

The question remains: who is eating and who is eaten?
Opening on Friday, March 23 at 7 PM – 11:59 PM
