Bijan Moosavi is a multi-media artist from Iran. He describes himself as a Muslim entrepreneur and an Islamic Futurist. His practice examines the implications of the expansion of neo-liberalism in the Middle East. In his video, music, performance and installation works, he draws on the aesthetics of television news, sci-fi movies, commercial music, business pitch and the Islamic kitsch in order to create speculative fictional situations and scenarios from the future in which issues related to the Middle Eastern patriarchy, commodification of Islam, the ‘post-truth’ condition, and Iran’s environmental time bombs are explored.

بیژن موسوی هنرمند چندرسانه‌ای اهل ایران است. او خود را با عنوان کارآفرین مسلمان و آینده‌گر اسلامی توصیف می‌کند. او در کارهای هنری‌اش به معاینه‌ی پیامدهای توسعه‌ی نئولیبرالیسم در خاورمیانه می‌پردازد. آثار ویدیویی، موسیقایی، اجرایی و چیدمان‌های موسوی از زیبایی‌شناسی اخبار تلویزیونی، فیلم‌های علمی-تخیلی، موسیقی تجاری، معرفی ایده‌های کسب و کار و «کیچِ» اسلامی بهره می‌جوید تا موقعیت‌ها و سناریوهایی تخیلی از آینده را خلق کند که در آن مشکلات مربوط به پدرسالاری در خاورمیانه، کالایی‌سازی اسلام، وضعیت «پسا-حقیقت» و بمب‌های ساعتی زیست-محیطی ایران مورد کاوش قرار می‌گیرد.
