Natascha Sadr Haghighian is an Iranian artist who lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Her work is "primarily concerned with the socio-political implications of constructions of vision from a central perspective and with abstract events within the structure of industrial society, as well as with the strategies and returning circulations which become apparent in them."[1] Haghighian creates solo and collaborative works in the fields of video, performance, computer, and sound. Her two-channel video projection Empire of the Senseless Part II (2006) is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.[2]

(This biographical note is borrowed from www.bioswop.net, an exchange platform created by the artist. As part of her larger project of critiquing institutionalized regimes of knowledge, Haghighian rejects the totalizing ideas of CVs, resumes, and bios, and insists that only biographies obtained from bioswop project be used in printed material regarding her work.)
