Statement:

Remote Homecoming is a platform designed to bring videos made by Iranians across the border remotely back home and bridge the gap between so-called “inside” and “outside” while acknowledging. These terms are fading rather quickly or at least are changing tremendously as we speak. Still, there are numerous obstacles to communicating between the scenes, and there is a lot to be learned. Chapter one of remote Homecoming was a selection of short films, videos, and performances from a wide range of Iranian artists from emerging to established and tried to show a gradient of practices across various disciplines and mediums. It was premiered at Limited Access 3 in Tehran & London. The 2nd edition of this program hopes to widen the definition of the medium by sharing various approaches, frameworks, and mediums. To imagine an aperture to what is yet unseen even in this post-social network era we live in.
Ever decreasing level of attention span, with the massive flux of data running on shallow and fragmented streams, one should appreciate having offline time, pretending everything is not about having the fastest access to “the latest,” and to start having faith in “the slowness” again.
