Feminism and identity in the work of contemporary Iranian female artists

Khakbaz Joybargholi, Mozhdeh (2015) Feminism and identity in the work of contemporary Iranian female artists. Masters by Research by Creative Works, Queensland University of Technology.


This practice-led project focuses on the Iranian context and the role of female Iranian artists using digital mediums to influence the social, political and environmental life of Iranian women. The exegetical component presents a discussion on the intersection between three theoretical areas of artistic practice in Iran; feminism, cross-cultural practice and digital image making. Particular concern to this study is the growing role of female Iranian artists in challenging the social status quo. This is conducted through an investigation of a number of Iranian female artists in the form of case studies and interviews and a discussion on the impacts of their work on the resulting creative practice portion of this study.
