Iran.com: Iranian art today


"iran.com - Iranian Art today" is one of the most extensive exhibitions of contemporary Iranian art shown in Germany in the last few years.

Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and by the Department of Foreign Affairs

Patronage: Gernot Erler, State Minister of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Member of the German Parliament

 

This exhibition is the first comprehensive presentation of contemporary Iranian art which has been realized by a German museum.

15 exhibits from the young and middle generations will be shown, encompassing all areas of the fine arts: painting, object art, sculpture, video, installation and photography. All the artists live and work in Iran. The central question posed by the exhibition is: how does their art reflect social reality, cultural context, political and religious authority, everyday living conditions? The art which will be presented deals primarily with the themes of borders and conveys the contradictions in contemporary Iranian society. Art, which subtly bring metaphoric into play. Art, which is in international discussion, without losing its Iranian roots.
EVENTS
 
Parallel to the main exhibition in the Museum of New Art, there will be events held all over Freiburg from the middle of October 2006 to the end of January 2007. iran.com - dialogues and cultural networks is a broadly-based cooperative project.

The aim is not simply to highlight various facets of Iranian reality by means of the exhibitions, films, readings and debates, but also to promote dialogues between Iranian and German artists and to build networks. Not only networks between Iran and Germany, between Isfahan and Freiburg, but also within Freiburg itself.

Children/Teens
iran.com also includes events for children and teens. The Lirum Larum Lesefest and Stories, the two literature and reading festivals which have been organized by the Freiburg Department of Culture for many years, have Iran as one of their focuses this year. This includes readings from Iranian authors of children's and young adults' books in schools and elsewhere. Film series, workshops, an exhibition of children's book illustrations, and much more. Lirum Larum Lesefest and Stories will take place from 11 to 16 October 2006.
