New Radicalisms

Golrokh Nafisi

Golrokh draws, paints, sews and brings people together in performances that look like collective processions. Her project ‘Manifesto Against Nostalgia’ sets out to question the usage of the word ‘nostalgia’ in relation to the current socio-political rhetoric that relies on the glorification of a past that never truly existed. The performance adopts a site-specific linguistic form each time accompanied by folk music that has different forms from singing to the choir to playing an ancient instrument to chant. The audience is invited to become an integral part of the event, as witnesses of this nostalgic dissidence.
