Pergamonmuseum - Iran. Moving into Modernity

The exhibition ‘Iran. Moving into Modernity’ depicts the many facets of nineteenth-century Iran through photographs, artworks, and historical postcards. The display illustrates how Iranian society originally interpreted modernity by balancing between tradition and innovation. Photography played an important role in this process. The exhibition is organised in collaboration with the National Archives of Iran, Tehran.
 
The exhibition will be on view until June 30, 2017
