What does freedom mean? Through the lens of her camera and through a kaleidoscope of history of women in resistance in the Arab world, Mashid Mohadjerin put together a multidimensional work which, through its varied formats such as photography, collage, text, and historical images, takes the viewer on a dreamlike journey neither bound by space nor time.

The artist’s book and exhibition ‘Freedom is Not Free’ focus on the private and public world of Iranian women who grew up after the Revolution of 1979 and on places of significance from Mohadjerin’s childhood. For these women the political can no longer be separated from the personal – their bodies, their private and public life have been and continue to be influenced by the Revolution.  

'Freedom is Not Free' is the result of Mashid Mohadjerin's PhD Research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Antwerp.
