At first glance and with an outside perspective, the Iranian art and cultural scene is booming: young Iranian cultural professionals are celebrating great international success. But voices are becoming more vocal in Iran that are complaining about a commercialization and de-politicization of the cultural scene. Dr. Arash Sarkohi sketches out the current situation ranging from repression to appropriation.
