BAHAR NOORIZADEH
looks at the relationship between art and capitalism. Via her practice as an artist, writer and filmmaker, she examines the conflictual and contradictory notion of imagination, sometimes camouflaged in the figure of speculation. Her research investigates the histories of economics, cybernetics socialism, and activist strategies against the financialization of life and the living space, asking what redistributive historical justice looks like for the present? She’s currently a PhD candidate at Goldsmiths, University of London.
