An extraordinary photographic artwork created by the artist Shirin Neshat, characterized by a great value not only artistic but also social and cultural.
Shirin Neshat was born in Qazvìn, a small Iranian city located in the north of the country about 165 km from the capital Tehràn but in 1957 she moved to the United States to attend university.
Returning to her homeland in 1990, the artist was struck by the changes brought about by the revolution (1978-9), following which restrictive laws were enacted according to which women could only keep their faces and hands uncovered.
Through her work Shirin Neshat analyzes the difficult social conditions within Islamic culture, with particular attention to the role of women, addressing the social, political and psychological meaning of being a woman in contemporary Islamic societies.
As a photographer and video artist, Shirin Neshat is famous for her portraits of female bodies entirely covered in Arabic calligraphy.
In her photographs and videos she shows through images full of tension veiled bodies, martyrs (men or women), submissive people who have to deal with violence and terrorism every day.
