Anahita Razmi - How your veil can help you in the case of an earthquake 2004


The video work „How your veil can help you in the case of an earthquake (lesson 1-8)“ is linked to an event that took place just before the date of origin of the video: the big earthquake in the region of Bam, Iran in December 2003. In the video the chador, the veil, symbol of muslim women, is used as a mere functional object. Shot in clearly contrasting black and white, the video is showing a rigorous direction in eight steps on how to use your veil as a lifesaver in the case of an earthquake, a dry run, that is reminding of stewardess instructions.
