About

Mahan Moalemi is a writer and researcher from Tehran.

He explores possible encounters between global visual cultures and critical future studies, with particular interests in transnational chrono/geopolitics, non/anthropogenic temporalities, and techno-aesthetics. His studies follow a tentative framework of Comparative Futurism, or a sociocultural anthropology of the future.

In his writings, Mahan engages with various topics and disciplines, including contemporary art, museuology, critical theory, political economy, human geography, history and philosophy of technology, and understandings of change, evolution, and survival in different fields of knowledge and practice.

He is co-editor of Ethnofuturismen (Berlin: Merve Verlag, 2018) and The Fisher-Function (London: EGRESS, 2017). His writings have also appeared in art-agendaCabinet, Domus, and Spike Art Quarterly, among other art journals, exhibition catalogues, literary publications, anthologies, and zines published in and outside Iran.
