The project is about a city trapped in a severe human and environmental crisis.
Tehran Monoxide Project is a cultural,artistic and collaborative project which has been going on since 2011, in the form of independent projects, in collaboration with artists and citizens from Tehran. This project’s goal is to raise awareness of and offer practical solutions to the problem of air pollution in Tehran. It reflects the viewpoints of people from all walks of life, from children to adults in terms of the issue of air pollution, what they cannot see but do breathe.
since 2011, Tehran Monoxide has run five projects in public spaces, focusing on two aspects. First, children and adolescents in Tehran, who contribute the least to the city’s air pollution and are harmed the most by it. The second aspect is highlighting the importance of green spaces as the lungs of the city, and offering solutions and recommendations to the problem with collaboration with people in public.
