Ali Bagheri and “Bahman Far Eman Mast”
Banknotes are the national identity of a country. Their design and motifs present culturally impactful history and achievements of the ruling Islamic Republic of Iran for permanence and remembrance. The collection “Bahman Far Eman Mast” includes graphical designs for the currency proposed to the Islamic Republic of Iran and its supporters, demonstrating the cruelty that brings them nationalistic pride. Ali has believed the oppression against women and murder of protestors are representative of the character of the regime, and would be a fine addition to the currency that entails so much pride.
Bahman Far mEan Mast
This poem is an excerpt from the Islamic Republic’s anthem and its meaning: The month of Bahman is the month of glory and greatness of our faith.
