Abstract:

  • Digital media have played a very significant role in anti-government protests in the Middle East (in Iran, Egypt, Syria and so on) over the last four years. It has changed the rules of political struggle and established new expectations and rules of confrontation for both protesters and authoritarian governments in the region. The Greens’ Art research project will be a curated exhibition of digital art and other works developed during the pre- and post-election period (2009-11), situated alongside participants’ accounts of the role of these works in the grassroots Iranian Green Movement.
