Iran: President Rohani says that “art without freedom is nonsense”
Iranian President Hassan Rohani said that creativity is developed in the light of freedom and that art without freedom is nonsense.
“We have tried to restore trust among the artists by appointing managers who love the Iranian artists’ community… transparency and honesty are our mottos and we are seeking democracy in art,” stated Hassan Rohani.
President Rohani made the remarks at Tehran’s Vahdat Hall during a meeting attended by a large number of artists, literati, cineastes and groups of presidential advisors and officials.
