What to Make of MoMA’s Stand on Trump’s Travel Ban/A closer look at what the rehang actually means.
This week, New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) rehung its prized Modern galleries, swapping out works by greats like Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso for works by artists from the Muslim-majority countries affected by President Trump’s travel ban.
British Museum is holding a small exhibition of works by Iranian artists titled: "Iranian Voices." The modern and contemporary art of Iran tells a multiplicity of stories. Made by Iranian artists of different generations, the works in this display include a variety of media from collage to artist books and photography. The narratives highlight an engagement with Iranian history from the legendary tales of the Shahnameh or Book of Kings (an epic in verse written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi in about AD 1010) to insights into the politics of recent decades. Between them, they present a series of vivid snapshots of the art and preoccupations of some of Iran’s most significant artists.

Secret negotiations and treaties have taken the place of constitutions and other forms of social contract, becoming the dominant method for managing natural resources, transnational security, copyright, privatization, food autonomy, financial fluxes, drug patents, and so forth.
Preserving historical fabrics in Iran in comparison to western countries is a newly established endeavor. This concern grew in Europe from several years ago and synchronous to modernization of societies. Technological developments in the twentieth century, providing the possibility to generate multiple copies of artworks firstly heralded a new age, in which Art, previously available only to the elite, was taken and brought among the ruck.
In the 1960s and ’70s, politicization meant taking a position, establishing and following a political program, taking up armed struggle, putting one’s skills (including art) at the service of the revolution, fighting in the name of the horizon of state socialism, and acting in solidarity with anti-imperialist and decolonization struggles.
Painters may view scenes in a way that's similar to how the world really is: A mishmash of colors, lines and shapes.
