Saeedeh Asadipour

Position title: Ph.D. Candidate


A Ph.D. Candidate in Art History, Saeedeh Asadipour works at the intersections of art philosophy, aesthetics and media theories, with a focus on modern and contemporary art. She is completing her dissertation, “Algorithmic Aesthetics in Contemporary Art from the Middle East,” that develops our understanding of the art of information at the intersections of studies of the Middle East, aesthetic epistemology, and science and technology studies. Looking at the work of artists Walid Raad, Atlas Group, Lawrence Abu-Hamdan (in collaboration with Forensic Architecture), and Jumanna Manna, her dissertation contributes to the reconsideration of the question of the representable by focusing on aesthetic strategies of epistemic disobedience within the regime of information or “informatics of domination.”
