Screening III: Monument in Flux

Previous 1 /  Next

with programmer Amirali Ghassemi | Sunday 29th of October 18:30-22:00

Amirali Ghasemi will present “Monument in flux”, which gathers artists, filmmakers and video essayists living across the globe, from North America to New Zealand, via Iran. We witness how monuments are in the state of constant flux from the ancient Tomb of Cyrus the Great to unsteady contemporary pedestals. We observe how revolutions can promise hope and change, and how these promises fade in the course of time, generating a sense of flux that washes away everything that is solid.

With contributions by Studio 51(Babar Samadi & Navid Salajegheh), Bahman Kiarostami, Mohammad Hosseini, Susan Bayani, Sanaz Sohrabi, mo H. zareei, Mona Kakanj, Payam Mofidi & Jalaleddin Anvari
