    (Wikipedia) - Parastou Forouhar

    Parastou Forouhar is an Iranian artist who lives and works out of Frankfurt, Germany. The daughter of activists Parvaneh Forouhar and Dariush Forouhar, Parastou was born in 1962 in Tehran, Iran. Her parents were murdered in the autumn of 1988, and Parastou relocated to Germany in 1991, where she has continued her work.


    Parastou studied Art at the University of Tehran from 1984 until 1990, where she earned her B.A., and went on to earn her M.A. from Hochschule from the Aufbaustudium an der Hochschule für Gestaltung in 1994.


    Solo exhibitions of Parastou''s work have been held at Stavanger Cultural Center, Norway; Golestan Art Gallery, Tehran; Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum fur Gegenwart, Berlin; City Museum, Crailsheim, Germany; and German Cathedral, Berlin. She has participated in group exhibitions at Schim Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Frauenmuseum Bonn; Museum of Modern Art, Frankfurt; Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum, Joanneum, Graz, Austria; House of World Cultures, Berlin; Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden; Jewish Museum of Australia, Melbourne; and Jewish Museum San Francisco.

    In 2002, the Iranian Cultural Ministry censored Parastou''s photo exhibition, Blind Spot, a collection of images depicting a veiled, gender-neutral figure with a bulbous, featureless face. Parastou chose to exhibit the empty frames on the wall on opening night instead of forgoing the show.
