Street art. “Ici, en Iran, le sentiment de lutte souterraine garde tout son sens” | Courrier International | Kiosque du monde : Asie | Scoop.it

Le graffeur iranien Nafir (“ la voix assourdissante”, en persan) travaille depuis 2008 sur les murs de Téhéran, mais aussi sur ceux d’autres pays, dont l’Afghanistan, la Malaisie, l’Inde, l’Italie et l’Allemagne. Par ses œuvres, maniant poésie et engagement politique, il réagit avant tout à l’actualité. Dernièrement, il a peint à Téhéran l’ombre d’un homme sur lequel est écrit “Iran” et qui est en train de faire un doigt d’honneur à Donald Trump. Il commentait ainsi le “Muslim Ban”, surnom donné au décret anti-immigration signé par le président américain. Dans sa seconde mouture, contestée en justice, le texte interdit l’accès aux États-Unis des citoyens de six pays majoritairement musulmans, dont l’Iran...

“Even the birds do not fly to Ezo,” went a popular 19th-century saying about Japan’s northernmost island. “Ezo” means “land of barbarians.” Settlement tamed it into “Hokkaido” — “north sea road.” But it was a rough passage.
Pioneers from the mainland — for centuries a trickle, by the late 1800s a steady flow — were of all kinds. Gold prospectors and other adventurers brought their...

Kenneth Rexroth never travelled to Japan, but the moods and modes of Japanese poetry heavily influenced him and, in turn, those who were influenced by him.
