Presenting audiovisual works by Arash Hanaei, Pegah Keshmirshekan, Sarvenaz Mostofey, and Bahar Noorizadeh, A Space of One’s Own aimed to investigate the characteristics of contemporary human spaces. It focused on the critical question of determinism and free will in a set of differing spaces while dealing with the changing meaning of time. How do the expectations and demands of communities as well as individuals in a society transform? In their dialogical works, the artists explore migration and displacement, individual and collective life in urban and suburban environments, public and private spaces, the multiple definitions of home and households, social alienation, and the impact of living spaces on human interactions. A Space of One’s Own was curated by Zohreh Deldadeh.
A Space of One’s Own was a collaboration between mohit.art and Heinrich Böll Stiftung Baden-Württemberg and took place in the frame of the festival CURRENT – Art and Public Space (September 14-24, 2023, Stuttgart).
The exhibition and event took place alongside the release of mohit.art NOTES #6 on September 14, 2023. NOTES is a regular, multimedia publication by mohit.art, in which the online exhibition A Space of One’s Own, featuring additional artists and works, is be presented.
