PARASTOU FOROUHAR: ART, LIFE AND DEATH IN IRAN (2010)
Edited by Rose Issa. Foreword by Lutz Becker
In her photographs, digital illustrations and installations, Parastou Forouhar expresses difficult subjects with wit, style and breath-taking artistry. Her work has a double edge: at first glance we see its elegance; on the second, its anger – for the voices of her parents, opposition politicians who were brutally murdered in their Tehran apartment in 1998, continue to be heard through their daughter’s work.
Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Leighton House Museum and Rose Issa Projects in London.
