‘When President Bush declared that Iran formed part of the Axis of Evil, Khosrow Hassanzadeh decided to make a series of paintings under the title Terrorist. The Tropenmuseum had a retrospective of the painter.

For the Terrorist series, Hassanzadeh made large portraits of himself and his family members, posing as terrorists. The technique, silkscreen, was inspired by the propaganda art of the Iranian revolution. The series should be seen as a declaration of independence, both of the West and of radical Islam.’
