Mahan Moalemi

Mahan Moalemi is a writer and curator from Tehran. As a current PhD student in the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies at Harvard University, he is researching a plurality of futurisms, past and present. In order to map intersecting regimes of futurity onto the vicissitudes of globalization, he examines the aesthetic and technological circumstances under which the concept and experience of time is reshaped from one model of history to another. He is the co-editor of Ethnofuturisms (Merve Verlag, 2018), and his writings have appeared in art-agendaArt in AmericaCabinetDomus, and Frieze, among other journals, anthologies, exhibition catalogues, and artist monographs. He was the 2021–⁠2022 recipient of the Graduate Curatorial Fellowship at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.
