Conversation with
Morehshin Allahyari | Moshtari Hilal | Sara Morais dos Santos Bruss

While Moshtari works with analog drawing, Morehshin’s art engages with new media such as virtual reality and 3D printing and modelling. Across these differences, they share an interest in intergenerational storytelling, family representations, and the hopes of bringing new perspectives into a sometimes stale discourse. The discussion will focus on matter and materialities, beginning with the very materialities of their artistic work and how these allow them to expand upon questions of identity, solidarity and difference within their respective contexts and beyond them. How does matter circulate to produce meaning? How is solidarity practiced hands-on in times of constant wars, representational politics, and social media hypes?
