The List

This work is another response to the mass massacre which happened in the Summer of 1988. Around 30,000 political prisoners were executed by the Iranian regime. Many of them were teenagers who had just distributed leaflets. After that Islamic Republic of Iran tried to hide the evidence and mass graves. In my work, I collected as many names as I could of the people who were  executed and left some blank paper for those names I couldn’t find. The list is covered by concrete.
