Zamân
 

Paris
Published by Zamân Books, Zamân is a cross-disciplinary review, which provides diverse perspectives on the Western and the Eastern World. The first two issues were published in 1979 and 1980 by Iranians exiles living in France. It was revived in the Spring of 2010, with the will to address topical issues and to focus on the relationship between science, art, and literature, with a critical perspective inherited from the Eastern studies and the postcolonial studies.
promotes the works of modern and contemporary artists (Barbad Golshiri, Ziad Antar, Julien Audebert, Abbas Akhavan, Jordi Colomer, Mitra Farahani, Shezad Dawood, Bahman Mohassess, Marwan…), rediscovered writers and untranslated authors in French (Zeynep Çelik, Laura U. Marks, Sohrab Sepehri, Etel Adnan, Giuseppe Pitrè…).
Zamân is elaborated in Paris by Élie Colistro (graphic designer), Lætitia Mate̱ke̱ (editorial coordinator), and Morad Montazami (editor-in-chief).
