شاید در میان تنوع و کمیت رویدادهای هنری با عنوان هنر معاصر جاری در جامعه امروز ما که با همه تفاوت هایشان در مقابل سنت جبهه مشترک دارند برپایی و ضرورت یک نمایشگاه با عنوان هزار و یک بشقاب زیرلعابی سوال برانگیز باشد. اما به نظر ایده پرداز، مجری این رویداد و همچنین نویسنده این متن این سوال همان قدر که پرسشگر است خود پاسخگو است. این پاسخ تنها در صورتی قابل درک است که نگاهی با تأمل به کیفیت آن چیزی که امروز در هنر معاصر ما هست، داشته باشیم. به راستی چند درصد از آثار خلق شده با گرایش های متعدد و مدعی هنر معاصر، خود توانستند تصویری درست از زیست یک ایرانی و یا هرگونه ویژگی که یک اثر هنری در کمترین حد خود حامل آن است به نمایش بگذارند؟ در نگاهی جزئ یتر و همسو با مدیای این پروژه یعنی سرامیک این پرسش پاسخگوتر است! زیرا حتی باید گفت در این حوزه، آفرین شهای هنری تحت عنوان سرامیک معاصر سردرگم ترند تا سایر مدیاهای هنری. اما از آنجا که این وضعیت ناشی از تاثیر مصادیق و نحله های فکری هنری خارجی بر جامعه است باید در ریشه یابی آن به حوزه های فکری و عملی خارج از ایران توجه کنیم. در حقیقت ریشه چنین اغتشاشی بیش از آنکه در زیر و رو شدن تعاریف و مفاهیم جدید از هنر در دروه معاصر باشد در بنیان های فکری و پایه گذار مدرنیسم نهفته است. کانت و ویژگی هایی که او برای تشخیص اثر هنری و امر زیبا به ویژه ضرورت غیرکاری بودن اثر زیبا برشمرد سرآغاز این مطالعه است.
Among the variety and quantity of artistic events having the theme of current contemporary art in our society at the present time, which despite all their differences share a common front with tradition, the question may arise regarding the necessity and erection of an exhibit entitled "one-thousand-and-one under glazed plates." But from the vantage point of an ideologue, the presenter of this event as well as the writer of this discourse, such question is as much amenable as it is questioning. The answer becomes perceivable only when we thoughtfully look upon the quality of what is prevalent in today's contemporary art. In fact, what percentage of created works of art with numerous tendencies claimed as contemporary art, could portray a proper image of the life of an Iranian or display with minimal limits any kind of characteristic that a piece of art bears. With a general view and in line with this project's medium meaning ceramics, such question becomes more amenable. It even needs to be said that in this realm of artistic creation, namely contemporary ceramics, lack of understanding is higher than other areas of artistic media. Since such situation arises from the effects of foreign artistic thoughts and meanings in our country, we should pay attention to the areas of thought and practice outside of Iran in order to explore its origin. In fact, such disorder turns upside down the new concepts and definitions of art in contemporary times much more than it is inherent in the foundation and thought structure of modernism. This study's preamble encompasses the qualities and aesthetics that Kant enumerated to distinguish a piece of art, especially the necessity of non-utilitarian aspect of a beautiful work of art.

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.
