Description The most recent work of the Iranian-American artist Shirin Neshat is a film entitled "Women without Men" - a poetic vision in five parts about five women who, after a difficult and uncomfortable journey, find themselves in a deceptively paradisiacal garden. The film is based on a novella of the same name by Shahrnush Parsipur, which is a provocative allegory on the situation in Iran today. This volume documents Neshat's development from her groundbreaking photographic works Women of Allah and Unveiling to her creations of more recent years, particularly the still incomplete project "Women without Men". She has repeatedly devoted her unmistakable work to the relationship between gender and culture, home and exile and to the situation of women in post-revolution Iran.
