About the Salon
Join Nasrin Tabatabai and Babak Afrassiabi for a discussion about their collaborative project, Pages. Started since 2004, Pages consist of different activities, such as the publication of a bilingual Farsi/English magazine, video and installation works and editorial re-articulations.
With Pages they try to pursue possibilities of reflection between various localities and conditions of artistic and theoretical discourses. With maintaining always a link to the contextual and historical realities of the issues addressed in each project and editions of the magazine, they generate spaces and instances of criticality and negotiation regarding the aesthetics and politics defining current artistic and theoretical practice and production.
