Iman Tajik is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. His work is anchored in a strong social interest; it offers a critical tool connected to international movements for social change and bridges the gap between art and activism.
Tajik’s work spans installation, video, photography, performance and public engagement art, with a particular focus on migration and globalisation. His work is influenced by personal experiences of crossing geographical borders and socio-political barriers to insist on the right to freedom of movement. Tajik spotlights and stresses the need for resistance towards imposed divisions that are implemented socially and politically in favour of some but not all. In 2017, Tajik founded Who is? Project in collaboration with Jonas Jessen Hansen.
