An evening in collaboration with Cineblend and Dancing on the Edge:

In the context of the Framer Framed exhibition Crisis of Histoy #3: Beyond History (2015) we will talk with and show clips from visual artists and filmmakers from Iran who live within or outside of Iran. How do these artists create alternative narratives to the dominant representation? And are these artists caught between the Iranian official discourse and the Western discourse on Iran? Is there such a thing as a dominant discourse or are there several discourses that contradict each other? Which audiences do the artists address?

With guests:
Barbad Golshiri
Reza Allamehzadeh
Nafiss Nia
Ehsan Fardjadniya

Moderator: Negin Kianfar

Barbad Golshiri’s work is also present at the exhibition in Framer Framed: Crisis of History #3.

For the project Hollowed Grounds writer Barbad Golshiri invites artists, writers and critics to reflect on the use of designated terms such as ‘the Arab World’, ‘the Islamic World’ and ‘the Middle East’. He proposes the temporary abolishment of these empty and floating signifiers and the ideological grounds they are based on to see what befalls their arguments.
