Unser Atelier-Buch* des Monats: «Enghelab Street. A Revolution through Books: Iran 1979–1983» von Hannah Darabi


540 Seiten, 240 × 330 mm, ca. 750 Abbildungen


«Enghelab Street, Revolution Street, is located in the centre of Tehran – a main artery in the city’s cultural life with a host of bookshops. The publication presents a variety of photographic and propaganda books collected by Iranian artist Hannah Darabi.


Drawing on works published between 1979 and 1983 – years corresponding to the short period when freedom of speech prevailed at the end of the Shah’s regime and the beginning of the Islamic government – she takes us to the heart of an intense artistic and cultural period in Iranian history. 


Darabi has developed a visual essay accompanied by a critical apparatus written by Chowra Makaremi. The publication with its extensive landscape of books gives us the opportunity to look at rare printed matter for the first time.» (https://tinyurl.com/y6ekrygk)
