Through 4 March 2017, the Fotohof of Salzburg, Austria, shows insights of everyday life in contemporary Iran.
The pictures at this exhibition offer insights into areas of life and social conditions in Iran to which outsiders are normally not privy. They range from the everyday changes to Tehran’s urban landscape to living conditions within Iranian middle-class families, which are private and therefore beyond the control of the state, to photographs of people who escape into a parallel world. The relationship between public and private is an underlying theme that occupies all the participating artists.
With her work Laurence Rasti references the restrictive legislation under which homosexuality is still punishable by death.
Hannah Darabi draws on everyday life in Tehran for her photographic narratives, adopting an undisguised, direct view of the urban landscape.
In his project, Behnam Sadighi accompanies young people along lonely beaches where, in small groups, they can be entirely themselves, together yet also unobserved.
Ohter participant artists include: Farzane Ghadyanloo, Navid Reza Haghighi, Bahram Shabani and Newsha Tavakolian.
