Paadmaan (meaning ‘safeguard’ in Farsi) is an independent artist-run platform for contemporary art with an interdisciplinary approach established in 2018 and based in Tehran. Through a variety of curatorial programming Paadmaan seeks to expand on existing discourses surrounding contemporary art within various Iranian communities, support their input and transform into output. Paadmaan aims to proceed networking locally and internationally and constitute the archive of contemporary art by focusing on research, dialogue and presentation. Paadmaan promotes these by organizing exhibitions, events, artist residencies, lectures, screenings, publications and various interactions throughout Iran and abroad.
