Rosh Zeeba work in the fields of performance, video, film, extended media and artistic research.
Born in Tehran, their studies include applied theater studies in Giessen and time-based media and film at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg.
Using extended media through a performative approach, Zeeba is able to rethink storytelling and open up a realm of queer, ornamental futurism. The story tells itself and is interwoven through space, image and viewer. Zeeba engages with post-dramatic cinema, post-cyberfeminism, queer theory and research about radical image production.
Themes: Crossings, glitching, irritation, intertwining, broken thread, memory and dreams, ghosts and intergenerational trauma, Persian mythology and soft world-building.
Zeeba’s works and lectures have a.o. taken place in Thessaloniki Queer Arts Festival, Tetem (Enschede), MOM Art Space and RaumLinksRechts (HH), Balkan Can Kino (Athens), Leuphana University (Lüneburg), Kunsthaus Hamburg and Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof (HH). Zeeba has participated in the Internat. Artist Exchange for "I-act", Alexandria (EGY) as a Goethe Institut Stipend. As a part of the para-institutional project
Haus Of Xhaos they curate the Video Festival„Imagining Otherwise“and host a monthly podcast.
