The Double Entendre of the Covered Truth

Project details

Programme
Year 1

This study explores the transformations in Iranian society in relation to the Woman, Life, Freedom movement and the dynamics between 'self, home, and city' through everyday resistance of Iranian women. Employing exhibition as a research tool, the narratives of eleven women residing in Iran are presented within a small space in London, transcending borders and engaging with a global audience.
