Enghelab Street, a street named in honor of the 1979 Islamic revolution, is located in central Tehran, a main artery of the city’s cultural life with many bookstores. The publication features a variety of photography and propaganda books collected by Iranian artist Hannah Darabi. Drawing on work published between 1979 and 1983, the years corresponding to the short period of freedom of expression at the end of the Shah’s regime and the beginning of the Islamic government, it takes us into the heart of an intense artistic and cultural period in Iranian history. Darabi has developed a visual essay accompanied by a critical apparatus written by Chowra Makaremi, researcher and member of the CNRS.
This book is a unique and original testimony and its publication gives us the opportunity to look at rare prints for the first time.
