Zan the Woman consists of free illustrations and collages. For its realization I travelled to my place of birth, Teheran. I decided to go on this journey to contrast a subjectively influenced view from the inside to the distorted picture, which is drawn of Iran because of global political reasons. As a native speaker (Farsi) I have different possibilities of access than someone who looks on the Iranian society from outside. The result of my work is the demonstration of a feminine strength, with the help of which Persian women establish pieces of freedom in every day life and courageously try to oppose and overcome the circumstances.
