Azin Feizabadi, visual artist and filmmaker, born in 1982 in Tehran, Iran, lives and works in Berlin. He is currently a research fellow at the Graduiertenschule of University of the Arts Berlin.
Since 2009, Feizabadi has been working on a long-term multidisciplinary research and production project titled ‘A Collective Memory’. Swaying between fact and fiction, as well as poetics and immediate politics, the multidisciplinary works within A Collective Memory create both political imagination and emancipatory participation. Within this project he directed and produced his latest feature film CRYPTOMNESIA (Premiered in 2014 at RWE Kino Museum Ostwall Dortmund) and among other mid-length and short films CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS (Premiered in 2012 at Berlinale – Forum Expanded) and THE NEGOTIATION (Premiered in 2010 at HKW Berlin).
