Afghan Glitch | In Conversation with Morteza Herati
This a conversation between two Afghan artists via zoom, curated by AVAH (Afghan Visual Arts and History) Collective. AVAH is enganging critically with Afghan and Afghan-diasporic themes at the nexus of mainly visual culture and cultural production. By utilising the digital space as a more ambiguous and independent sphere to negotiate artistic practice and culture, in contrast to institutional and national frameworks that operate with different agendas and limits, AVAH invites artists to meet across their displacement and share their practice and thinking. For this curated conversation the artists Mumtaz Khan Chopan and Morteza Herati came together to discuss Mortezas digital work series "Afghan Glitch". Chopan tunes in from Indonesia, Herati from France, while AVAH records the whole conversation from Germany.
