Asa Soltan Rahmati was born in Ahwaz, Iran, in 1976. The backdrop of her childhood consisted of the Pahlavi dynasty, the Islamic revolution in 1979, and then the almost decade-long war between Iran and Iraq. Asa and her family fled to Germany in 1984 and lived there as political refugees for eight years before once more seeking political asylum, this time in the United States. Her politics are personal, and her artistic work draws on her life as a refugee.
