HerMaP Art Projects


HerMaP Art Projects2019-2022
Digital platform development for HerMap Art Projects residency in a hybrid context of online participation and restricted in-person activities, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program proposed cultural dialogues between Iran and Europe and was structured in two phases between 2019 and 2022. For both phases, Fora provided creative support and technical assistance to develop each artist's project for the digital environment. In the first phase, 12 artists collaborated with local agents to reflect upon Iran's industrial heritage and living archives to develop seven original works. As a culmination of the project, a physical exhibition showcasing the projects was held at the BOZAR Cultural Center in Brussels. During the second phase, 14 artists delved into Iran's intangible heritage, particularly focusing on poetry and musical expressions, developing 10 new artworks.
