Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz:From 17th century Sarmatism, the dominant ideology amongst the Polish nobility, to monobrows in America to the Green movement in present-day Iran, Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz looks at the unlikely shared heritage between Poland and Iran and in particular, the revolutionary potential of crafts and folklore behind the ideological impulses of two key modern moments, the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and Poland’s Solidarność in the 1980s, bookends to the two major geopolitical narratives of the recent past, the communist project of the 20th and Islamic modernism in the 21st centuries.(slavs and tatars) Slavs and Tatars is a faction of polemics and intimacies devoted to an area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia. The collective’s work spans several media, disciplines, and a broad spectrum of cultural registers (high and low) focusing on an oft-forgotten sphere of influence between Slavs, Caucasians and Central Asians(artist page) Video thumbnail: Slavs and Tatars, Kitab Kebab (Mexico, I), 2012, books, glue, metal skewer, 50x50x50cm | © Image courtesy
