“The Price of Oil” (2019) was announced the winner of the 4th Annual International Experimental Film Festival “The Unforeseen” in Belgrade, Serbia. Thanks to CZKD Team and the jury members: Manja Ristić, Ivana Rajić and Luka Beslagic.
Jury’s Comment: “With an extremely important and present political message, the film, through the dramatization archaeology of media, shows us the deep roots of neoliberal exploitation. The composition of the film equally emphasizes the poetical-typographic, musical, graphic-animation treatment of the structure, in a comprehensively successful experimentation with form.”
“The Price of Oil” has been awarded the jury’s “Mention” in the ninth edition of FIVA, the International Video Art Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My recent animation work, The Price of Oil (2019), in collaboration with Mani Mehrvarz (director) and Wooden Cities (music), has been officially selected in 4th International Experimental Film Festival “The Unforeseen”. The festival takes place at CZKD (The Center for Cultural Decontamination) in Belgrade.
On Saturday, November 23rd 2019, Prof. Luka Bešlagić (FMK) will give a lecture on what is experimental in film today, and what can be considered an experiment followed by the second half of the competition program. The winner will be announced at the end of the festival, followed by a concert by Manja Ristić.
The Price of Oil (2019), my recent animation work in collaboration with Mani Mehrvarz (director) and Wooden Cities (music), celebrates its World Premiere this December at the FIVA 9 International Video Festival in The General San Martín Cultural Centre in beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Public Opening for Open House

Please join us for a free public opening for Open House: Domestic Thresholds by Heather Hart, Edra Soto, and Rodney Taylor. This exhibition features projects that explore how people build connections to others both inside and outside the walls of those structures we call home. During the opening, dancer Naila Ansari, media artists Mani Mehrvarz and Maryam Muliaee, and musician Curtis Lovell will present a collaborative, multimedia art project that will use new media, performance, and live dance to transform the static physical space of the exhibition into a dynamic interactive environment. The audience is invited to experience the work by watching the filmed performance on their mobile phones in the exhibition space.

UNEXPOSED is an exhibition of 40 young Iranian female artists chosen among 400 candidates whose creations were never exposed before. This also justifies the title of the exhibition: UNEXPOSED. The exhibition gives to these young women artists the opportunity to demonstrate their work in Brussels, Athens, Warsaw and Tehran.
The exhibition is curated by Fery Malek–Madani (art historian), and organized by Art Cantara. The opening was prefaced by the Minister of the French Community of Belgium at Brussels, and the exhibition was followed by two major conferences:
28 Nov 2012 – “L’Art Moderne en Iran, de son émergence à aujourd’hui”
15 Dec 2012 – “Les opportunités ou les défis d’être femme et artiste dans l’Iran d’aujourd’hui”
In Athens, the exhibition will be accompanied by parallel events (films, conferences, open conversations) and afterwards, it will travel to Warsaw (April-May 2013).
