Artist talk and Imago Mundi:10×12-Bangladesh presentation


Artist talk:

Amanullah Mojadidi(Afghanistan)

about Amanullah Mojadidi:

The artist Aman Mojadidi’s practice is based on his personal experiences and academic research in cultural studies, in a world that is simultaneously globalized and fractured. With degrees in Cultural Anthropology, his work utilizes a critical, experimental ethnographic approach, combining qualitative research, traditional storylines, and postmodern narrative strategies to approach themes such as belonging, identity politics, conflict, and the push to and resistance against modernization; intentionally blurring and merging the lines between fact and fiction, documentation and imagination.

His practice is particularly known over the last several years for projects he refers to as Fieldwork, site/context-specific works that respond directly to the social, cultural, political, and economic systems of the environment where he is working.

He has exhibited his work in New York City, Los Angeles, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cairo, Mumbai, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Dubai, London, Kassel for dOCUMENTA (13), Fort Kochi for the 1st Kochi/Muziris Biennale 2012, and Kabul.
