From January 9 to February 11, 2019, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution, LE BAL presents the project of the artist Hannah Darabi, around her collection of photographic and political books.
Published between 1979 and 1983, short period of relative freedom of expression corresponding to the end of the Shah regime and the early Islamic government, these books show an intense political boiling. This period, fundamental to understand the history of this country in the 21st century, is deciphered by Chowra Makaremi, anthropologist and researcher at CNRS.
In order to offer another reading of this collection, Hannah Darabi will have her books dialogue with a personal artistic work consisting of contemporary photographs of her hometown, Tehran, and existing documentary images such as family photos, media images or postcards.
