Azad Asifovich is a curator and art lecturer with a background in political science, culturology and curatorial studies, currently based between Paris and Antwerp. He is interested in the relationship between artistic practice, contexts and their representation. His projects question gray zones, gender and the art world, and revisit (non-)Western historical references through common knowledge such as TV series, linguistic habits and popular literature. Her curatorial practice involves co-creation and co-writing through a stenographic device and contextual interventions.
