Thinking the Iranian revolution today
Hannah Darabi, Reconstructions
Forty years ago, the 1979 revolution turned Iran into a huge political laboratory, shaking received ideas on revolution (Who is doing it ? How ? In what name ?) and marking the emergence of a fact which stands out in our contemporary world, political Islam.
The objective is to explore what this event has become, but also what it has never become: What was the experience like ? Who were the actors ? What is the memory of it ? Which paradigm this close return to the event offers us to understand other movements today and their future, from Egypt to Syria. The exhibition will end on February 11, anniversary date of the Iranian revolution, with a day of general discussion and conferences coordinated by Chowra Makaremi around those questions.
