قهـــرمــان

خصلت ویژه جهان معاصر بی حوصلگی است که در نسبتش با سرعت تعریف می شود زمانی مارکس این حکم را صادر کرده بود که هر آنچه سخت و استوار است دود می شود و به هوا می رود.آن چه امروزه بی حوصلگی خوانده می شود بصراحت در شمایل هایش یعنی قهرمان ها و ابر-قهرمان هایش نمود می یابد.قهرمان هایی که از پرسه زنی ها و حجم انبوه زندگی های توده وار برخاسته اند تا مضحکه جدال خیر و شر را در قالب سوپرمن ها،بتمن ها،اسپایدرمن ها و...بازتولید کنند.اگر این قول والتر بنیامین را جدی بگیریم که قهرمان مدرن قهرمان نیست بلکه ادای قهرمانان را در می آورد،امروزه یا همان زمانه پسامدرن قهرمان از لابه لای آت و آشغال های فرهنگ پاپیولار و به عبارتی کیچ سر بر می آورد که ممیزه اش سرعت مصرف توده هاست که مخاطبان سراپا هوش این آفریده های پسامدرن اند.دقیقا قهرمان هایی از این دست که خاستگاه شان کامیک استریپ هاست،هر دهه به فراخور حال مصرفی توده های مخاطبشان یک به یک از جلد کاغذی و حتا سایبری شان بیرون می آیند تا جهان را به سرعت به دست تاریخی جدید بسپارند که حوصله به یاد آوردن جزئیات را ندارد و پیشه اش فراموشی است.سوپرمن در هیبت ابر-قهرمانی است که هویت دوگانه ای را به دوش می کشد یک شهروند معمولی که بسیار راضی در میان توده ها زندگی می کند و از سوی دیگر یک ابر-قهرمان که در برابر هیولاها و مصیبت هایی که می خواهند نظم همین شهروندان معمولی را بر هم زنند به مبارزه می ایستد و شگفتی می آفریند.سوپرمن محصول زوال حافظه جهان اکنون است؛جهانی که در چرخدنده های انواع و اقسام ابتذال ها،لایه بر لایه فراموشی اش افزوده می شود.این ابر-قهرمان های امروز یا همان زمانه پسامدرن پس از غلبه بر مصائب و مشکلات پیش آمده به نقش عادی خودشان باز می گردند تا یادآور شوند که جهان امروز به سرعت همه چیز را می روبد و فراموش می کند(هر آنچه سخت و استوار است...) تصویر این بی حافظگی و بی حوصلگی شاید وظیفه هنر امروز باشد که ایماژهایی را خلق کند که در حکم نوعی تذکر به جهانی است که تاریخش و قهرمانانش را طرد کرده و به بوته فراموشی سپرده است و بنابراین آفرینش بصری این یادآوری،چیزی است که هنر امروز را بیش ار پیش ضروری تر می سازد و کارکردی انتقادی بدان می بخشد.

Hero

Ennui is the characteristic aspect of the contemporary world which is defined by its relationship to speed. "Whatever is solid and strong melts into thin air”, once Marks had claimed. What today we call ennui, is directly represented in its icons, its heroes and anti-heroes. The flaneur heroes who arise from wandering mass society life style only to reproduce the cacophony of the battle between good and evil , personified as Supermen, Batmen, Spiderman, etc… . If we accepts Walter Benjamin's claim that the modern hero is not really  a hero but merely is acting as one, in our post-modern era the hero emerges out of the hubris of popular culture and kitsch, characterized by the speed of mass consumption and addresses the anaesthetized masses as his audience. Heroes of this kind, typically originating from comic strips, in every decade, consistent with the demand of the masses, emerge of their fictional paper based or cybernetic world and become personified as people who want to make history and change the world in a way that it can't remember the past. Superman is a superhero which carries the burden of a double personality : as an ordinary citizen living happily among the masses and as a super-hero who fights against monsters and calamities who try to disturb the order imposed by this same ordinary citizens , and of course they make wonders. Superman is a product of contemporary world's amnesia, a world which trapped in the gages of every sort of banality adds layer upon layer on its forgetfulness. after overcoming the obstacles, this super-heroes of contemporary post-modern world return to their role in their everyday life just to remind us that this is a world which can sweep and forget everything (" whatever is solid and strong") so quickly. Picturing this insomnia and ennui might be the task of today's Art, to create image which is a criticism of a world which has abandoned its heroes and history, a critical task which today makes Art making more necessary than ever.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
