The process Artdom part 1
Unfortunately, the Ministery of Culture in Iran banned the Artdom exhibition in Teheran.
The ban served as a grim reminder of the reality that female artists in Iran face, and only made us more determined to continue with the project.
Despite the obstacles, we reached about 20 million people online overnight.
The ban is a proof of how art and the subject of women's rights are still seen as threats and how limited artists are in these countries.
Four of these Artdom artists in Iran came together and created the painting ”Woman”- a strong artwork that holds a message of protesting against women’s limited freedom.”
Their courage and strength in wanting to change women's situation inspired other artists to want to join Artdom.

Negar Zonoobi explaining what freedom is for her This is the DESTINY painting where Malin Mossberg also collaborated with the same painting..
-"For me, freedom is painting and that ass makes people feel free and able to paint what they want The idea for this painting was that something beautiful could grow out of darkness and clay. The art itself means freedom for here".
Sabina explaining the process with the Believe painting
By crossing the cultural borders between different worlds we wish to create a strong connection and collaboration between those who participate. That increase the understanding between the different worlds. By creating contact between women artists living in different realities, under different conditions, in two very different worlds, we can make a collaboration on a level that the artists and other involved and interested did not think was possible! That will give the participants opportunities to develop strong relations that are helping and enriching.
