Iran Inside Out

This group exhibition shows contemporary photographs by German and Iranian women photographers who deal with questions of self-determination in the field of tension between tradition and modernity.

The photographers Forough Alaei, Mashid Mohadjerin, Beatrice Minda, Sarah Sasani and Shirana Shahbazi live in Iran, come from Iran or have worked in Iran for a long time. Whether on location or from a (safe) distance: their own experiences, history, family stories and the situation of other women in the country are the starting point for their photographic and video works.

Iran Inside Out: Tradition in Conflict with Modernity

The exhibition's photo series have been created since 2010 and address the social situation in Iran. The artists locate themselves in this society and their positions address and examine the conflict between tradition and modernity. Each photographer has chosen her individual artistic approach to capture her own experiences and snapshots. The title "Iran inside out" takes up this view of the situation in Iran, both from within and from afar, and looks at the upheavals and developments in the country.
