A Utopian Stage

MaerzMusik 2019

By the early 1970s, it had become one of the principal platforms for transnational experimental exchange of creativity and knowledge, hosting artists from around the world, amongst others important figures of the musical avant-garde like Iannis Xenakis, Karlheinz Stockhausen and John Cage. Interrupted by the Iranian Revolution of 1978/79 and declared decadent in a decree by Ayatollah Khomeini, all materials associated with the festival have been removed from access and officially remain banned in Iran. The exhibition project “A Utopian Stage” reconstructs this complex space of international modernity by highlighting the “third worldist” sensibilities of the immediate post-colonial period and tracing an exchange of knowledge across alternative (often non-European) plateaus.

Das „Festival of Arts“ war ein radikales Kunst- und Kulturfestival für darstellende Künste, das zwischen 1967 und 1977 in Shiraz und den antiken Ruinen von Persepolis stattfand.
