Icy & Sot - A Moment of Clarity

The young Iranian brothers Icy and Sot are known as the Banksy of Iran. In their own country, their work is not only considered controversial, it is often banned. The work of these street artists holds a mirror to the current Iranian society and offers an idiosyncratic view on themes like oppression, fame, freedom, war and dreams. The works that feature in this exhibition – held at the Moco Museum in Amsterdam until 15 January 2019 – were chosen by museum co-founder Kim Logchies and Dutch-Iranian entrepreneur Anna Nooshin.
