Azadeh Fatehrad

Dr Azadeh Fatehrad is an artist and curator based at Kingston University in London. Fatehrad’s research engages with postcolonial feminism. She has made extensive use of archival material including that held at the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt am Main, the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam, and the Institute for Iranian Contemporary Historical Studies (IICHS) in Tehran. This has 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, such as Hengameh Golestan: Witness 1979 at The Showroom, London (2015), and The Feminist Historiography at IASPIS, Stockholm (2016). She has presented papers on “The Neo-traditionalist: The Representation of Women in Post-revolutionary Iran” (Moderna Museet, Stockholm); “The Captured Everyday Life: Akerman and the Politics of Representation” (Westminster School of Media, London); “Challenging Gender, Embracing Intersectionality” (University of Stockholm); and “The Communal Social and Inter-political Stage of Curatorial Practice” (Sharjah Art Foundation, UAE). She is currently curator of Beyond the Frame in partnership with Iniva, University of the Arts London and the Liverpool Biennial. She has exhibited her work internationally in London, Vancouver, Amsterdam and Tehran.
