Germany is set to host an exhibition of artworks currently held at Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art.
“We are planning to organize an exhibition, showcasing 30 Iranian and 30 international artworks from the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art in Berlin,” director of the Visual Arts Bureau of Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance Majid Molla-Norouzi announced on Saturday.
“The event will exhibit some of the world’s most prominent artworks and we expect to receive 500 to one million visitors,” he added.
According to Molla-Norouzi, visitors will also get the chance to take part in conferences and seminars on the sidelines of the exhibition in order to get more familiar with Iranian art.
