Coinciding with International Animation Day, last year the “Animation Walk” project was realized in Tehran by Animation; Experiment collective and New Media Society, in collaboration with Asifa Iran. It was a one-day animation screening that included 29 works by Iranian artists. The works were displayed in 18 different venues; namely a florist, a bistro, optic store, bookshop, computer store, galleries, and cafes. The addresses were pinned on a paper and on an online map in the districts of Karimkhan Blvd. and Valiasr Junction in downtown Tehran.
The second destination of the project was Vienna, Austria. This time, the Animation; experiment collective and New Media Society, in collaboration with the Hinterland gallery, screened 26 animated films by Iranian artists in various parts of Vienna for a month, from February 16 to March 16, 2019. The Hinterland gallery also offered five guided walking tours, so that the enthusiasts could join them to visit the venues and talk about the works.
Isfahan is the third destination of the Animation Walk project. They will hold this event on Saturday – Sunday, November 9-10, 2019 in the surrounding of Hakim Nezami St. in 24 different venues. The wide range of the screening venues, in various layers of the city, seeks to invite the potential audience to discover new routes and get re-familiarized with the diverse careers through walking in this neighborhood of Isfahan. With the help of these animated films, the project’s collaborators seek to invite visitors to explore the area, new and old shops, offices, etc. Plus, they hope to provide a friendly and useful contribution to the everyday life of the passersby.
