Simon Wachsmuth at SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin (19/04/2019)

On 28 March 2019, Simon Wachsmuth gave a talk on his film 'Pulad Zurkhaneh (2007)' on occasion of 'A Utopian Stage' project with the curator Vali Mahlouji at SAVVY Contemporary in Berlin. 'A Utopian Stage' is a multi-faceted and (open-ended) evolving project that revisits the radical aspirations of the hyper-modernist networks of artists and experimentalists which defined the 1960s and 1970s. This reconstruction of a complex space of international modernity is defined by the ‘third worldist’ sensibilities of the immediate post-colonial period.
