Abstract or Description:

Public programme as part of the parallel exhibition at MARSistanbul,
Metaphorical Space, co-organized with Pınar Öğrenci.

Writing on the City is an essay film on the evolution of graffiti in Tehran by Kurdish-Iranian filmmaker Keywan Karimi. It tells the story of Iran’s political history over the last three decades. The film is neither ‘for’, nor ‘against’ something, but instead presents the walls of Tehran as a site of social, political, as well as quotidian and subconscious expressions by a diverse Iranian public.

The event was the premiere of the film in Turkey and was supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum Istanbul, Arts Council England, Openvizor, Seven Cerceve, SALT, Depo Istanbul and Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV).
