Ramin Aryaie is a german-iranian audio-visual artist, activist, film maker and freelance designer.
They grew up in western Germany, creating and experimenting with visuals from a young age. With 16 they moved to Malaysia for a year. After finishing high school they left Europe for a few years to hitchhike around New Zealand and sail the South Pacific. Over the years they have traveled around 30 countries, self-studying photography, film, live projections, web design, layout for print and digital as well as branding along the way.
After returning they wrote, designed and self-released their first photo-book ‘Black Magic Baby Jesus’, a thorough documentation of life in general and their experiences in specific on several islands in Vanuatu. The book is a critical exploration of topics such as patriarchy, neocolonialism, spirituality and domestic violence in the post-colonial societies of Vanuatu.
Exploring the cross-over between systemic discrimination, economic exploitation, empowerment and organising and what some might call faith, has long interested Ramin and influenced their work. This is how they ended up bringing together art, activism and spirituality. There are no borders or limits to how mediums, perspectives and approaches can be mixed to resemble reality much more than we are used to. Or to externally create new realities, dystopias and utopias, to reflect, heal and challenge ourselves and each other to co-create a different, more equal and fair future for all beings on this planet.
