Artists Creating Change for Equality
payvand / By Tara Nadjd Ahmadi

I have been active in the Feminist movement in Iran for several years. During these years, I have come across certain questions, the answers for which I am still struggling to find. The following are some examples:

  • How much and to what extent can I use artistic expression as a political/social statement?
  • What is the form and nature of feminist-artistic activism?
  • What distinguishing factors differentiate between protest art and other forms of artistic expression?
  • As a woman and a marginalized member of a patriarchal society, how can I express my objection to the status quo through the use of art?
