The first monograph to thoroughly document Shirin Neshat's video production, The Last Word provides both a beautiful reminder of her work's color and intensity and a crucial tool for her increasing number of fans and scholars. Neshat, who studied in the United States and has lived in New York for many years, found international success following the explosive release of her images of Muslim women wrapped in chadors with verses by rebel Persian poetesses traced on their faces, hands and feet. She became renowned when her short film "Turbulent" was awarded the Leone d'Oro at the 1999 Venice Biennale. With her camera persistently focused on the veiled women of the Muslim world, Neshat has continued to make striking and courageous work of rare beauty and intensity, and has presented it to continuing acclaim. She goes fearlessly into the widening gulf between conformism and revolt, submission and compliance, that characterizes the women of the Muslim world, seeking out images from the far sides of the divide that will both narrow the distance and help viewers sound its depths. "The Last Word" is a necessity for those who would approach, informed, the poetic works and the fierce commitment of an extraordinary artist.

Very good. Edited by Dabashi H. and Zaya O. Translation by Cowan D. E., Montolio C. and Watson J. León, MUSAC, September-December 2005. LasPalmas, CAAM, May-July 2006. Dalla macchina fotografica alla cinepresa per raccontare, con la stessa lucidità e senza compromessi, il disagio dell'umanità. Dalle foto delle donne velate che parlano attraverso poesie antiche scritte su mani e piedi, dal Leone d'Oro (Biennale di Venezia 1999), l'iraniana Shirin Neshat non si è mai fermata e offre al mondo pellicole che scorrono armoniche, miscelando realtà e visioni oniriche, metafore e provocazioni, racconti delicati e analisi razionali. Questa è l'unica monografia che documenta integralmente la sua produzione di video; strumento essenziale per chi già ne apprezza il lavoro e per chi intende avvicinarsi alla poetica e all'impegno di un'artista straordinaria in continua evoluzione.
