Mitra Azar is a self-described eclectic schizo-nomadic video-squatter and “ARTthropologist” with a background in aesthetic philosophy. He admits to be haunted by images and by the relational-performative-philosophical aspect of doing them. The idea of borders as fluid, flexible, amorphous entities – and the political role of art and digital technologies within the frame of an aesthetic of crisis and of mass events – have been the framework of his practice-based research.
The talk will be moderated by Renan Laru-an
