The photo serie “The Break” documents a stop on the way from Tehran to Shemshak. Shemshak is the place for leisure and parties, the place, where ‘everyone’ goes to escape the city. Shemshak is a popular ski resort in the Alborz mountains just 55 minutes car drive away from Tehran.
“The Break” is part of the artistic research project “IN-BETWEEN: half here – half there” by Magdalena Kallenberger. The artistic research project “IN-BETWEEN” consists of interviews, photography, film & video works. “IN-BETWEEN” was financally supported by Berlin Funding for Graduates (NaFöG) (2009-2010) and the DAAD German Academic Exchange Service (2008, 2009-2010) and realized in Teheran, London and Berlin.
