Norouzi, Minou. 2019. BODY POLITICS. [Professional Activity]

No full text available

Abstract or Description

Body Politics brings together thirteen contemporary Iranian artist-filmmakers whose work explore notions of womanhood, female gaze, body-memory and body technology, informed by geographical and geopolitical conditions.

Curated by Mania Akbari and Amir Ali Ghasemi, this program hopes to provide a counter narrative to the tired image of the Iranian female artist as seen not only in the mainstream media but also in the art world. Featuring work by Mehraneh Atashi, Negar Behbahani, Bahar Behbahani, Nebras Hoveizavi, Mona Kakanj, Simin Keramati, Shahrzad Malekian, Bahar Noorizadeh, Anahita Razmi, Bahar Samadi, Niloofar Taatizadeh, Jinoos Taghizadeh and Maryam Tafakory, this program is defined not by the films’ location-specificity but a diversity of conceptual and experiential approaches in tackling the question of body as the site of politics.

Panel discussion with Mania Akbari, Minou Norouzi, Bahar Noorizadeh and Maryam Tafakory.
