Talk Series #1 : Bita Razavi | 23 DEC 2014
Born in Tehran in 1983, Bita Razavi lives and works in Helsinki and Metsakivi, Estonia. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music from Tehran
Art University and holds a Masters in Fine Art from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts. While collective memory, collaboration and socio-political observation are the essential elements in Razavi’s recent practice, the dialectic between bringing what is personal to the public sphere and the impossibility of total exposure because of law or social pressure has created a secretive and
criminal aspect in most of her works.
She has exhibited her works at 3rd New Art Biennial of Tehran, 1st Trondheim Biennial, XV Biennale de la Méditerranée, Helsinki Photography
Biennale, Helsinki Design Museum, Helsinki Photography Museum, SESC Pompeia, Gothenbug biennial and Cité international des Arts, Paris.
