Beyond the Exhibition I. Contextualising of the Emerging Iranian Artists

Curated by: Shahram Entekhabi and Asieh Salimian (Factory TT Berlin/Tehran)

Artists:Shaghayegh Ahmadian, Negar (Zahra) Alemzade Gorji, Mustafa Choobtarash, Negar Ghiamat, Fahime Haghighi, Sara Hosseini Sefiddashti, Mehrdad Jafari, Alireza Nekouei, Roohangiz Safarinezhad, Rene Saheb, Farzin Shadmehr, Shahryar Rezaei

Presented by: Gallery Katharina Maria Raab

Opening 7.1.-21.1.2018

The starting point for Beyond the Exhibit I is the observation the lack of an institutional system for contemporary art in Iran, the lack of international exchange and the shortcomings in the field of education. If originally the few, more underground-based, off-market galleries were oriented towards an alternative-experimental understanding of art, today a gallery system based on economic speculation and plagiarism has emerged - also under the influence of the buyers from the Arab Emirates and Western art agents and the decorative in the foreground. This created a single market that has little in common with the value of an international art community.
