Tehran-born, Paris-based artist Hannah Darabi is known for her works that bring together photography with texts, archival images, and objects. Enghelab Street, A Revolution through Books: Iran 1979–1983 (2019) is a comprehensive archive of publications from across the political spectrum that were published during a period of regime change, which saw a brief flourishing of free expression before the religious dictatorship set in. The rare printed matter in the installation, all collected by the artist, takes audiences into the heart of this defining period in Iranian history. Darabi renders historic materials alive with masterful photographic storytelling, combining images of the swiftly censored books with her own photographs of contemporary Iran. Her award-winning artist’s book, which coheres all these materials with scholarly essays and interviews, will be available at The Diane Evans Bookstore.
