Creative Conversations | Iranian female artists works and the Women, Life, Freedom revolution: Jinoos Taghizadeh and Roshi Rouzbehani in conversation
This Spring Term, the Royal Drawing School’s Online Lecture Series hosts Creative Conversations; dialogues between artists, curators and writers, live on Wednesday evenings.
It is more than 100 days since the brutal killing of Mahsa (Jhina) Amini while she was in the custody of the so-called morality police in Tehran. In response to this horrid incident, Iranian people, led mostly by women, are in the streets fighting for their deprived liberty against a patriarchal dictator regime. How can artists show their resistance and solidarity? What can be the role of drawing in this?
In this in-conversation session, after a short look at the history of protest art in Iran, we focus on how female artists of Iran respond to and support the movement.
We will look at how Iranian female artists have become the voice of the Iranian people to amplify their protests message around the world. Jinoos and Roshi will also talk about their own socio-political creative practice.
