about

Parisa Karimi is a media artist, researcher, performer and workshop instructor. She loves to transform places and perception.

In her interdisciplinary works she combines storytelling with documentary elements, animation, (live) projection mapping, (av) performances and installations, along with interactive interfaces and possibilities for participation.

Her work focuses on the human subject, the body and its memories, as well as encounters with the body and its stories. Here, a key role is often played by diasporic perspectives and identity. Who are we? What shapes us, and how can we break through the boundaries of ostensibly fixed histories and spaces?

Her works have been shown at various international festivals, including: FiraTàrrega (Spain), VISIO (Brazil), European Short Film Festival at MIT (Netherlands), Environmental Art Festival (Iran).

Parisa Karimi is the founder and a co-curator of the HeimatlosGrenzenlos (“HomelessBorderless”) network and studio space. She lives and works in Cologne.
