2015 Saturday April 18 at 18:00 ~ Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art: Beginnings of Conversations; artists-designers-students of the Dutch Art Institute and Werkplaats Typografie in conversation with Iranian artists living both in Tehran and abroad.

tag: Tehran


How does a conversation transform from an informal encounter to a public moment? The evening proposes a public event with a group of artists-designers-students of the Dutch Art Institute and Werkplaats Typografie in conversation with Iranian artists living both in Tehran and abroad. It is the second step in the beginning of a set of conversations that started in Tehran. The first step took place in the form of a non-public work-gathering a few days ago at Sazmanab to discuss keywords or fragments of thoughts in working groups. These keywords that stemmed from the conversations range from 'oikopolitics' (politics of the household) to democratisation, nationality, immigration, seeking asylum, citizenship, insider/outsider, among others. What remains informal from a conversation once it travels into public exposure? The evening does not intend to provide definite answers to these questions or keywords but to propose points of entry as well as various forms for transformation with the general public.
