From March 24 on, NOTES will present different contributions by artists and authors from and about Iran every month during 2023. The spectrum includes artistic, scientific, social and political discourses related to contemporary fine arts, literature and poetry, architecture and design, music and performance. NOTES works with the thematic input of the contributors from Iran, whereby the focus is on currently relevant topics in the respective local cultural and artistic context. The contributions will thus be as critical as possible and as sensitive as necessary. Media diversity lies at the heart of the online publication, which includes texts, images, videos, digital storytelling, and podcasts. The contributions are conceptualized, commissioned, and implemented in cooperation with organizations and individuals from the existing and constantly growing network of NOTES is published in English. Stay tuned!
