About this book

Iranian artist and film maker Shirin Neshat has been exploring the relationship between women, identity and Islam for more than 20 years. Dreamers is a pocket-sized artist’s book, based on the eponymous trilogy of black-and-white video installations. In them, Neshat explores the dreams of three women through emotional narratives remaining on the border of dream and reality. The tri-fold design solution allows readers to examine three narratives establishing a dynamic dialogue. The black-and-silver duotone printing references Neshat’s inspiration in Man Ray, and immerses the reader in the inner ethereal world of the main characters, a sensation that is deepened by the extreme darkness of ultra black paper.
