Shirin Mohammad

Shirin Mohammad, b. 1992, Tehran, Iran.
Lives and works in Tehran and Berlin, Germany.


Mohammad’s interdisciplinary practice lies at the intersection of archival research, filmmaking, and installation art. Drawing on the formats of both documentary and fiction, she often deploys an unscripted approach to found or fabricated narratives that evolve into unprecedented constellations of historical events. With a particular focus on the sociopolitical history of Iran, her home country, she creates media ecologies that incorporate geographies of displacement as a means to look into the past as perhaps dead yet radiating stars in the dark sky of the present.
