Dr. Azadeh Fatehrad is an artist and curator based in London. Her research engages with postcolonial feminism. Fatehrad’s research, artistic and curatorial practice are intertwined around a process of gathering information and generating new imagery in response to archival material she discovers. Fatehrad has made extensive use of archival material including those held at the Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt am Main; the International Institute of Social History (IISH), Amsterdam; and the Institute for Iranian Contemporary Historical Studies (IICHS), Tehran. This allowed her to develop new insights into feminist history, in particular Iran’s women’s movement, and devise a related series of public programmes including exhibitions, conferences and workshops including, ‘Hengameh Golestan: Witness 1979’ at The SHOWROOM London (2015), as well as ‘The Feminist Historiography’ at IASPIS, Stockholm (2016). She has presented academic papers at a variety of conferences and symposiums, such as ‘The Neo-traditionalist: Representation of women in post-revolutionary Iran’, Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and ‘Challenging Gender, Embracing Intersectionality’ at Kingston University, London. Fatehrad is currently curator of Beyond the Frame in partnership with Iniva, UAL, and the Liverpool Biennial. She has exhibited her work internationally in London, Vancouver, Amsterdam and Tehran.
