Mahan Moalemi

Mahan Moalemi is a writer and curator from Tehran, currently pursuing a PhD in Film and Visual Studies at Harvard University. His research explores the (pseudo-)discipline of Comparative Futurism, where he looks into encounters between global visual cultures and critical future studies, considering contemporary art, cinema, and digital media as sites of negotiation between variously situated appeals to temporality, historicity, and futurity. An alumnus of Goldsmiths, University of London, Mahan is the co-editor of Ethnofuturisms (Merve Verlag, 2018) and his writing has appeared in journals, exhibition catalogues, and edited volumes published in and outside Iran.
