Treibsand

Treibsand DVD Magazine on contemporary art, looks at current trends in international art. Each volume explores essential questions and concerns of a specific region or country and each is co-curated by a different artist. The DVD not only presents works of art, but also statements by those involved in the world of arts and culture, reflecting important aspects of society and giving an insight into art and its discourses.

TREIBSAND VOL. 01 sheds light on contemporary and emerging art in Tehran, concentrating predominantly on an analytical stance in times of waiting. Waiting for the future may be expressed as yearning or depression, or it may appear as a long, protracted period in which past and present are analysed in depth from a personal and post-colonialist viewpoint. The concept has been drawn up in close collaboration with Parastou Forouhar (Frankfurt am Main/Tehran).
