This project focuses on the problematic state of the contemporary artist of the 'other'ed world. Here five different are history books are explored that present a solely euro-centeric narrative but nonetheless are most commonly used for art educations in other cultures—here, in Iran. In each book, one aspect is explored. In Janson's history of art, by cutting out all texts not related to the material culture, the focus is put on the small portion dedicated to the discussion of art in Asia and also on the absurd low quality of the black and white reproduction and the extreme the censorship. In Frida, the focus is censorship as the book is presented with the post-its that were officially used to cover certain images. The post-its are opened to show how the body of the female artist is yet again objectified and eroticized by the simple act. In "Photography in the 20th Century" by Petr Tausk, a socialist narrative of history of photography that is commonly used for art education in Iran, the emphasize is set on how the history if Iran is separated and humiliated next to that of the world. In the "History of Beauty, Umberto Eco"—the only book in this project not purchased in Iran—an experience is done. A page from the book is given to each of the viewer (in New York) and the audience is requested to evaluate wether they believe that this page is in anyway related to the Middle Eastern Visual history. If the answer is yes, the participant is asked to save and return the page, if not to fold, tear, and roll the pieces. There is one page in the entire book where the art of the region is discussed.
