►a'21: Motavali 2 | Media Performances_New Media Society


Motavali 2 (Continuous in Persian) brings together performative positions across different disciplines: lecture performance to Multimedia Installations. Projects which are being made, being revised, or tested; while most of our interactions and urgent matters in life are happening “online”. It's inevitable to examine these presences & absences simultaneously. While emotional & economic pressures might force us to act / react irresponsibly toward our collapsing societies & the artificial / passive togetherness. Motavali 2 is the second series of media performance nights curated by New Media Society, Tehran, which were interrupted by the pandemic in March 2020 and features artists based in Tehran, Berlin, New York and Barcelona.
