Anahita Razmi: „I’ll eat your liver“ ≈ “I love you so much”
Saturday, September 21, 3pm
A performative lecture by German-Iranian artist Anahita Razmi on weird translation errors, the contingencies of cultural misunderstandings, double entendre and Persian liver idioms.
Presented with Carbon 12, Dubai.
Anahita Razmi’s works facilitate settings between a “West” and a “Middle East” in which the meanings of existing images, artifacts and thus identities are put into question. Within this, the Islamic Republic of Iran with its current political and social conditions and relations remains an open, ambivalent point of reference.
