The Common Thought of the East and the West

Hafez and Goethe

International Art Gallery is currently working on a project in cooperation with artistic and cultural institution of Shahid Beheshti University and the Cultural Center of German embassy. This Project is called 'The Common Thought of the East and the West' and includes bi-language poems of Hafiz and poems of 'West-Eastern Divan' of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, his spiritual brother, in both Farsi and German; the result is an exquisite textual and integrated arts collection that will premiere in Iran and Germany.

The prime objective of this bi-national cultural project was the revival of interaction between the West and the East and returning to the golden age when the Eastern literature influenced Western scholars; especially during the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures 2013-2022. This collection will include classic integrated arts created by seven Iranian, Farsi and German arts professors.
