Three days of seminars, music and readings on the occasion of the exhibition Unedited History. Iran 1960 – 2014
Architecture, poetry and literature
from contemporary Iran
From Forugh Farrokhzad, the “voice” of Iranian poetry who has embodied the unease of an era of transformation through absolutely non-conformist personal and artistic choices, to the pages of a literature that allows us to comprehend the evolution of the Iranian society of today with more immediacy than any socio-political analysis and through to a view of the unchanging element of the landscape and the spirit of the Iranian plateau: the Islamic garden.
Saturday 28 March, 17.00
I’ll hang two red cherries from my ears
Forugh Farrokhzad: voice, spirit, body
MAXXI B.A.S.E., Graziella Lonardi Buontempo Hall – admittance free
A major voice in contemporary poetry, a passionate and courageous woman, Forugh Farrokhzad embodies the unease of an era of transformation through unequivocally non-conformist personal and artistic choices. Her verses contain the echo of a conflict between tradition and modernity which Iranian society has yet to resolve.
The performance represents an opportunity to get to know the woman, the lover and the artist through her own words.
