Shirin Neshat, Iran. Addresses social, political & psychological dimensions of women's experience in contemporary Islamic societies. She resists stereotypical representations of Islam, her artistic objectives are not explicitly polemical. Her work recognizes the complex intellectual & religious forces shaping the identity of Muslim women throughout the world. Using Persian poetry & calligraphy she examined concepts such as martyrdom, the space of exile, the issues of identity & femininity.
