Participant Profile

Ilkin Huseynov


Ilkin Huseynov is an artist and cultural worker. Ilkin’s practice is based on an experimental research process, working with various media and visual styles. His latest multimedia project “Looming Dreams” leverages AI-based technologies to visualize the near future, with all our hopes and fears tied to the current senseless war of Russia against Ukraine.

Ilkin explores subjects such as urbanism, ecology, memory, constructs within realities, imposed images, and artificial intelligence. He uses experimental new media to explore global uncertainties and promote cross-cultural dialogue through socially conscious art.

In 2018, Ilkin, together with Leyli Gafarova and other artists-activists, co-created Salaam Cinema. This independent community-driven cinema and art space organizes exhibitions, festivals, and educational workshops dedicated to equality, inclusion, and diversity.
