I just stumbled across this interesting site, a re-purposing of Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis in an attempt to discuss recent events in Iran. I can’t say I agree with all the content (Not that I disagree, I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on in Iran), but it’s fascinating how activists have taken frames from the original comic, reordered them, changed the text, and generated an entirely new story, as if it is an extension of the original comic! Persepolis 2.0 is a relatively crude re-creation, but since the original comic is so graphic, it really works. An interesting attempt at open source creativity…
You can read the whole comic (12 pages so far) here. You can download a pdf from the site as well.
Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled art fairs, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
For the time being, please enjoy
