                                                                                                                                            BIDOUN means ‘without’ in Farsi. In our contemporary context, it connotes the statelessness in which many of us find ourselves


An art quarterly launched in 2004 by young Iranian diaspora,  Bidoun magazine “was created as a platform for ideas and an open forum for exchange, dialogue and opinions about arts and culture from the Middle East.”  

The e-zine version has limited viewing but for a taste, see the following three articles from various editions:
