Heading Utopia

Behrang Samadzadegan

The work of Behrang Samadzadegan is inspired by the history of the 1979 revolution in Iran. He creates imaginary pictures and stories based on pictorial documents to investigate stories of the lives of individuals possibly affected by the repercussions and consequences of the revolution; particularly those that are excluded in documents and photos. Accordingly, his stories appropriate narratives and motives from classical and contemporary literature as well.
