Foreign Objekt is a non-profit research network founded in 2019 and directed by Sepideh Majidi. Foreign Objekt has no institutional affiliations and operates independently.

providing a platform for research residents to collaborate and share their work, and
organizing workshops, symposiums, study groups, art exhibitions, and publications.

Posthuman School- posthuman philosophy studies
Space Gallery- art exhibitions in Berkeley, California
Deep Objekt- modeling general intelligence, consultancy services
We are working with concepts and fields such as philosophical idealism, rationalism, Marxism, posthumanism, and Artificial Intelligence.
