Description

The Body Politic

Sat 9 Sep | 15:30 | Bargehouse

Throughout history, the female body has been the subject of political, social, and philosophical discussions. Mania Akbari grew up in a society characterized by patriarchy and autocracy, under a government that, based on values driven by religion and tradition, wants to control the body of a woman. Here we will explore the possibilities for navigating these restrictions through complex and inventive visual forms that allow women artists to use their bodies expressively. Examining images and film clips, we will look at the reflection of the female body in cinema and visual arts, before and after the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Mania Akbari will be in conversation with Sophie Mayer (author of Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema) and Vali Mahlouji (Iranian art curator and writer).
