The collective letter of the Iranian artists to their colleagues in the world

Corona Virus and the collective letter of Iranian artists to their colleagues in the world

All of us, citizens of any country and of any nationality, are also citizens of a territory without borders and flags called "Art", in a world called "Culture", and no power can ever deprive us of this citizenship.

In this common and dream territory, whether we were Asian or European, American or African, we have the gift of cultural understanding and communication, the talent to influence public opinion, the ability to analyze and the opportunity to change the conditions of the human society.

All of us, with our works, with our artistic tastes, with the particularities and uniqueness of our cultures, have imagined and told the faith and unbelief, love and hate, peace and war, knowledge and ignorance, goodness and malice, damnation, salvation and redemption, and through these works we have learned to know and make known a shared world much larger than the countries in which we live.

The more powerful and their policies, driven by hatred and intolerance, have tried to divide and forbid us, the more we have united and become stronger and braver, more determined and decisive in transmitting our common humanitarian messages.

At this moment, all of us, regardless of geographic and political positions, are facing a common mortal enemy who does not care where he comes from, but it matters that he introduces himself everywhere, freely and quickly, and that we are fragile in the face of this tiny enemy. and vulnerable to the same extent, and we cannot save ourselves without saving the other.

Corona is not only a virus, but a historical question, albeit a simple one, that is receiving complicated answers from the nations and governments of the world.

We ask you; can the response of the Iranian nation, suffocated by sanctions, be on a par with the responses of all other nations to this historic question?

Is it not legitimate to expect that the response of free and independent artists from around the world to the question "Corona", with the common danger behind their doors, will be different and more effective than the answers of their politicians and powerful?

This crisis will sooner or later pass, with more or less victims, but the stories, common or different, of his stories will remain. The story will remain of the exhausted nurses who, to raise the morale of the patients and colleagues, started dancing in the infected corridors of the hospitals and hidden behind this fake cheerfulness, their desperations for the lack of means and medicines. The story of the doctors who stayed away from home for weeks, without masks and gloves, among the patients in intensive care, often treated on the ground in hospital corridors, will remain.

These and others will remain indelible in the historical memory of the world, and sooner or later, from you or from us, they will be told.

Maybe before it's too late, as long as the breath remains, the artists engaged and influential on public opinion would bring the oppressive story against the Iranian people to politicians and powerful people of the world in these moments of humanitarian emergency!

The Iranian people today face two emergencies; one municipality that you know as "Corona", and the other that we wish you never know; the "sanctions"! Isolation and maximum pressure policy!

For us Iranian artists, in this moment of humanitarian emergency, it is vitally important to know you, the artists from all over the world, as you think of the conditions in which our infected citizens, children and the elderly sick of Corona find themselves, and disastrous shortcomings of the Iranian medical community and the health system collapsing between the emergency and sanctions, and how you plan to support us.
