A new dark age for Iran?
A warning about the future Iran.
Iran ison the brink of entering another dark age under its new conservative regime, according to one of its leading artistic luminaries.
Ali Reza Sami-Azar, who recently resigned as the head of the Teheran Museum of Contemporary Art, said the cultural glasnost of the past five years had come to an end.
"We are in very grave danger of reverting back to the post-revolutionary days, when only those artists who were deemed as expressing so-called Islamic values were displayed," he said in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph.
