Shirin Neshat - Art in exile (via TedTalks)

via TEDTalks 

I first came across the work of Iranian-born artist Shirin Neshat during the London Iranian Film Festival 2010, and I have been interested in her work since then. Recently Shirin has continued to push her work and experience as an artist in exile. In her work, she explores Iran pre- and post-Islamic Revolution, tracing political and societal change through powerful images of women.

Her latest project is an independent film titled Women Without Men. The story chronicles the intertwining lives of four Iranian women during the summer of 1953. During a recently TEDTalks session she tells of her life as a female artist, and artist in exile, the link of politics in her work.
