Artist meeting: Nasim Aghili

Nasim Aghili (b. 1980) is a Swedish-Iranian artist, director, writer, and performer. Nasim works in the field of performing and fine arts, participatory performances, theatre installations, and art in the public space. His art often deals with the experience of existing and living in different forms of exile and takes the form of healing rituals. Nasim Aghili’s plays were translated into different languages such as English, Spanish, and Arabic. They were performed or presented in countries such as Puerto Rico, England, Mexico, the US, the Netherlands, Estonia, and Sápmi. Nasim works in the queer feminist collective Ful and in the duo aghili/karlsson together with the artist and horticulturalist Björn Karlsson. In the last few years, they have been engaged in international projects that explore radical gardening, civil disobedience, and the aesthetics of sisterhood – mainly with artists, activists, and collectives whose work involves various forms of decolonizing practices.
