Mahan Moalemi is a writer and researcher from Tehran. Pursuing studies in the emerging field of Comparative Futurism, he explores possible encounters between global visual cultures and critical future studies, with particular interests in techno-aesthetics, transnational chronopolitics, the genealogies of contemporaneity, and the myths of genesis. Mahan has also been examining the contemporary art world as a global experience economy by looking at the installation shots of exhibitions that have neither been documented nor even staged, but artificially imagined. He is co-editor of Ethnofuturisms (Leipzig: Merve Verlag, 2018) and his writings have appeared in art journals, exhibition catalogues, literary publications, anthologies, and zines published in and outside Iran. Mahan is currently a PhD student in Film and Visual Studies at Harvard University.
