Katayoun Arian

Katayoun Arian is a researcher, curator and writer with an interest in how we understand diversity and often misuse and neglect the reality and contradictions of displacement as it connects to under-exposed histories and the (de)coloniality of knowledge, being and power. Her background in art history and social science/anthropology coalesces in projects ranging from exhibitions, to organising discursive events, screenings, reading circles, and other forms of interdisciplinary and collaborative work. Recent curatorial projects include I Speak in Tongues (37PK, 2017), Voices Outside the Echo Chamber (Framer Framed, 2016) and The End of This Story (And the beginning of all Others) (Framer Framed, 2015).
