Rouzbeh Akhbari (Tehran, Iran 1992) is an artist working in video installation and film. His practice is research-driven and inspired by storytelling. His work usually exists at the intersections of political economy, critical architecture and planning. Through a delicate examination of the violences and intimacies that occur at the boundaries of lived experience and constructed histories, Akhbari uncovers the minutiae of power that organizes and regiments the world around us. He holds a graduate degree in Visual Studies from University of Toronto’s school of Architecture, Landscape and Planning.
