Freedom of speech


2011. The Biennale Internationale Design. Saint-Étienne, France

The use of threads as a symbol of hair in this context highlights the power of individual expression and cultural identity, and how these can be used as tools of resistance against censorship and oppression. The act of removing hijab or tearing pages to access information can be seen as a statement of defiance and a demonstration of the desire for freedom and knowledge in the face of restrictive regimes. These symbols also represent the bravery and determination of those who refuse to be silenced, and who continue to fight for their rights and freedoms. The project is a unique and impactful way to bring attention to the ongoing situation in Iran and to raise awareness about the ongoing fight for freedom and equality.
