Studio visits: January 30, 2020 - from 10 am

Berlin-based German/Iranian artist and filmmaker Yalda Afsah (born 1983) continuously explores the extent to which filmed space can become a construction through cinematic means, as the documentary character of her works transitions into a form of theatricality. Afsah studied at the University of Arts Berlin, Burg Giebichenstein College of Art in Halle and the California Institute of the Arts. She has presented her work at various exhibitions and festivals including the Locarno Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) London and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. In 2018, she received the Karl Schmidt-Rottluff scholarship and is a current fellow at Graduate School at UdK, Berlin.
