“We Want It All, Even If It Is Superficial”

Posted in Art, Iran by homeyra on November 7, 2006


By Farhad Moshiri       Artist’s bio

Moshiri:  ” […] For better or worse, globalist visions are coming true where
Iran will find more reason to hold on to its history and tradition. Perhaps a new harmonious dynamic will emerge from this globalist agenda. Stage one: We are enticed by the “seductive better,” such as Hollywood, Nike, Starbucks, MTV, Nestle and Armani.  Stage two: The above mentioned superficial things will strategically find their way into our minds. Stage three: We quickly start to show symptoms. (see: WELCOME exhibition) Stage four: Outcome depends on whether you are optimistic or not.

I believe we are in the third stage on the crossroads of history and the future, religion and nanotechnology, war and peace and love and logic. We are in a euphoric limbo with plenty of roads to choose and we choose all, not wanting to sacrifice anything for the other. We want it all, even if it is superficial.”
