mise en abyme

Curated by Sandra Skurvida

Mise en abyme is a stand-in for the void, a figure opening the subjective fissures of national states, and performatively destabilizing positions of power ā€” the ā€œIā€s are focused on the potentialities of arousals and upheavals.
The program features works conditioned by the aporias of recent social, political, and ideological insurrections around the world and with reflection on Iran.

Participating artists:
Morehshin Allahyari, Mehraneh Atashi, Maneli Aygani, Bahar Behbahani, Negar Behbahani, caraballo-farman, Samira Eskandarfar, Nooshin Farhid, Barbad Golshiri, Anahita Hekmat, Zeynab Izadyar, Nosrat Nosratian, Amitis Motevalli, Neda Razavipour, Hamed Sahihi, Bahar Samadi, Farkhondeh Shahroudi, Negar Tahsili and Kianoosh Vahabi
