Anja Saleh is a cultural advisor, artist, poet and author of “Soon, The Future Of Memory”, her first full-length poetry collection published in June 2021 with Edition Assemblage in Germany.
Her research and art focus on the culture and politics of memory, the colonial continuities within remembering and its effect on our futures.
Since 2020 she has been the program coordinator and advisor of a yearly fellowship program for young, critical creatives of diverse backgrounds in Germany and Europe through Datteltäter Academy.
Critical of historical, emotional and environmental sustainability within the fashion and jewellery industry, Anja Saleh founded TAVII Studio in 2018, a cultural project and fair trade jewellery shop that centres artisans and their stories. As the main jewellery designer she wants to highlight and support genuine artisanship in collaboration with artisans in Cairo, Egypt; Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and Berlin, Germany.
