BAZAR Art Book Fair

Iran, Tehran

Founded in 2018 by co-directors Hedieh Ahmadi and Ronak Moshtaghi, BAZAR Art Book Fair is an Iran-based platform that seeks to establish an inclusive community of artists, publishers, and audiences allowing them to exhibit and trade their publications independently.
While the focus of the project is to organize an annual art book fair in Tehran, the platform is active throughout the year —holding workshops, participating in international art book fairs to distribute local art publications abroad, and through the expansion/exhibition of its art book collection.
The lack of an open and inclusive platform to distribute and exhibit artistic and self-published material in Iran was the main motivation behind founding this program.
