Donja Nasseri, born in Düsseldorf in 1990, studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Gregor Schneider and Peter Piller until 2022. She previously studied at the Kunstakademie Münster under Mariana Castillo Deball. She combines photography, objects, video and language to create a 'collaged unity'. The central aspect of Donja Nasseri's work is the negotiation of tradition and change - that of an artistic medium as well as that of a diverse society, including the examination of interwoven histories and narratives that shape our understanding of identity and trauma and the reactivation of materials from museums, archives and communities. By generating and recontextualising historical and personal memories, she aims to contribute to a nuanced understanding of the past and its impact on the present, for example to negotiate a dialogue about the impact of colonialism.
