Golshiri’s installation, Distribution of the Sacred System, currently in display at the Contemporary Art Museum, addresses the theocracy’s manipulation of religion for political and ideological ends. The work, which combines sculpture with prints of schematic drawings and text in Persian, is full of puns and double entendres that mask its horrific indictment.
