Your body-of-work is a battleground is an appropriation of #barbarakruger's Untitled (#yourbodyisabattleground). Kruger created this work in 1989, the year that is considered by many as the origin of the acknowledgment of the marginality of non-Western artists in the international art scene. This work is indeed Iman Raad's self-portrait, who migrated to the West and lingers in a temporality that belongs to neither of the two art histories. It explores the contemporary condition where multiple art worlds find themselves subordinated to the methodologies of the Western art history and the discipline of art history concentrates generally on Western art.
Iman Raad graduated from #yaleuniversity with a MFA in #Painting. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
