What does freedom mean? Through the lens of her camera and through a kaleidoscope of history of women in resistance in the Arab world Mashid Mohadjerin put together a multidimensional work which, through its varied formats such as photography, collage, text, and historical images, takes the viewer on a dreamlike journey neither bound by space nor time. Mohadjerin’s work is permeated with the duelling nature of documentation and art, past and present, pain and joy, war and peace, loss and creation.

This artist’s book focuses on the private and public world of Iranian women who grew up after the Revolution of 1979 and on places of significance from Mohadjerin’s childhood. For these women the political can no longer be separated from the personal – their bodies, their private and public life have been and continue to be influenced by the Revolution. The publication 'Freedom is Not Free' is the result of a PhD Research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and the University of Antwerp. The PhD started as a research on female freedom fighters in the Arab World, culminated in a very personal journey to Mohadjerin’s native Iran.
