Enforced Disappearance,2018

Enforced Disappearance presents a different interpretation and contextualization of historical photographs from the 1979 Iran revolution, prompting the audience to critically examine the fundamental concepts and prevailing ideology that shaped the revolution, four decades later. By deliberately removing Imam Khomeini, who served as both the leader of the revolution and the main subject of the photographs, this project encourages viewers to imagine an alternate historical narrative. It challenges them to extract new insights from these archival images, contemplate the present state of affairs, and speculate about the future trajectory of Iran.
