Tonight’s Radio Show – New Players, New Roles

852_468068136619857_156759464_nNew Players, New Roles2A group of six UK-based Iranians on show in London, June 2013.

What is it like living between two countries, or being exiled from the place where you feel you belong? And what are British views of Iranians today? When viewing the art, what are the traps into which we frequently fall, and are we precipitating existing problems of misconception and alienation that occur on both international and micro levels?

For today’s Six Pillars to Persia radio show on Resonance104.4FM, we hear extracts from close interviews with very different artists Koushna Navabi, Andrew Khosravani, Alinah Azadeh, Nooshing Farhid and Neda Dana Haeri discussing their work. The show continues until Sunday June 16th 5pm at Hundred Years Gallery, Shoreditch nearest Hoxton Overground or 10 minutes walk from Old Street underground station.
