Persepolis Pt 1

Persepolis Pt 1

Sunshine's picture

I think it is really interesting how Marji idolizes people who have been tortured in prison, and how the revolutionaries idolizd martyrs (without any critical inference of if the people they were herolding actually died in protests), especially in context of what we talked about in Disability about the way that disabled war verterans are treated differently than other disabled people.


On a different note, going along with the veil talk, I think it would be interesting to talk about how we use clothing to express our identities, and the implications of that when we talk about access. Whether that be access in what we can wear or access in what we can perceive. Also the generality of representing yourself in an abstract way and how that can be interpreted, which we have already spoken about in regards to portraits.
