Freedom Is Not Free
What does freedom mean? Through the lens of her camera and through a kaleidoscope of history of women in resistance, Mohadjerin put together a multidimensional work which takes the viewer on a dreamlike journey bound by neither space nor time. The art-book accompanies an exhibition focusing on the private and public world of Iranian women who grew up after the revolution of 1979 and on places of significance from the artist’s childhood. Her works are part of an artistic doctoral research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Antwerp, which started as a research on female freedom fighters and culminated in a very personal journey to her native Iran.
