Artist/Author: Parisa Damandan | Reference: P3528 | ISBN: 9789056131111 | Type: Publication

On 26 December 2003 an earthquake destroyed over 90% of one of the most ancient cities of Iran, Bam. Nearly half of the inhabitants lost their lives and the impressive citadel was turned into dust. It also destroyed the most famous photo studios located in the old parts of the city. Iranian art historian and photographer Parisa Damandan decided to pay tribute to the victims by excavating, collecting and restoring the archives of five studios, supported by the Prince Claus Fund and AIDA Nederland. She was able to save at least 30,000 negatives, all memories of life in Bam before the city was ruined.

Sensible Politics: The Visual Culture of Nongovernmental Activism

Editor: Meg McLagan and Yates McKee | Reference: P2800 | ISBN: 978-1935408246 | Type: Publication

A diverse group of contributors, from art historians, anthropologists, and political theorists to artists, filmmakers, and architects, considers the interaction of politics and the visual in such topics as the political consequences of a photograph taken by an Israeli soldier in a Palestinian house in Ramallah; AIDS activism; images of social suffering in Iran; the “forensic architecture” of claims to truth; and the “Make Poverty History” campaign. Transcending disciplines, they trace a broader image complex whereby politics is brought to visibility through the mediation of specific cultural forms that mix the legal and the visual, the hermeneutic and the technical, the political and the aesthetic.
