WARLESS DAY

Solmaz Vakilpour, born in 1980 in Khorramshahr/Iran, is an Iranian-German activist/artist who deals with the topics of women’s rights and war in her performance series WARLESS DAY. While she is preparing her new campaign, which is to be held on International Women’s Day in front of the Cologne Central Station in 2016, she is contacted by an acquaintance from Iran: the actress and director Moujan Mohammad Taher wants to do a demonstrative nude action in Iran, which is extremely dangerous.
