ISSUE 7 – Tehran City Guide
Tehran City Guide will cast a look at Tehran, utilizing the trope of city guide as its title, but more than that, the issue attempts at thinking of a city as a site and generator of cultures and scenes — as well as archives. Today as urbanization is truly a global phenomenon, we are living in an era where potential new varieties of world cities are taking shape. While the Parises, Londons and New Yorks of the world will certainly hold their own as cities that never sleep, as places for pursuing aspirations, at the same time the modernism’s core idea of culturally experiencing the changes is increasingly happening elsewhere. With this in mind, the particular City Guide presented by this issue will take a brief look at Tehran as a cultural metropolis — and an urban territory — a site of experiencing modernity, in the past, present and future.
