Iranian contemporary photography


Starting February and until September, various expositions will be held at Apollonia, but also in the European Parliament of Strasbourg and through postings throughout the city.

A prospection mission was held in Iran between the 5th and 12th of October 2018. It allowed us to grasp some of the various aspects of contemporary artistic creation in the city of Tehran. This ultimately led to a large-scale project surrounding contemporary photography, giving the public an authentic and accurate image of the artistic diversity of Iran today. The pre-selection of the artists, as well as the meeting programs, were determined following many months of research and cross-referencing.
