Mina Mohseni

Mina Mohseni is an Iranian artist residing in Berlin. She holds a Bachelor’s (BFA) and Master’s (MFA) degree in painting. As a multidisciplinary artist, she also excels as a printmaker and co-founded the Dara Prints collective in 2009.

Her artistic practice is diverse, encompassing drawing, installation, video, and printed matter, all driven by a socially engaged and research-led working methodology. Mina pursuits revolve around critical themes, including the power system, public space, water, nature-ethics, and their influence on identity formation.

Her work serves as a platform to raise questions about the lives of the middle- class and the significance of public spaces. To present alternative narratives, she weaves in elements from sports and fairy tales. Delving into the margins of daily life and subcultures, she explores the expectations of possible futures through speculative fiction, reflecting on personal struggles and perspectives.

Mina Mohseni has held eight solo exhibitions and participated in over 20 group exhibitions and residencies across various countries, including Iran, Kuwait, England, Turkey, Austria, Finland, Lithuania, Germany, France, and Portugal.
