SANAZ GHAJAR

Newsletter

Sanaz Ghajar (she) is an Iranian-American writer, director, and DJ whose work has been described as “ambitiously subversive” and “unapologetically experimental” (Time Out NY). The shape of her work changes radically project by project, with a consistent focus on alternative structures guided by image and sound. Form is open, so the container of the final expression may be a film, photo-essay, pop-political collage, musical adaptation of a classic, rock-opera concert, animated music video, and more. What unites the work is a continued balance between the personal and political. A deep commitment to the study of philosophy, history, and visual art guides her practice.
