Interview with the Art Secretary of the Grand Award of Down with USA

The slogan of “Down with USA” Is an Obvious Slogan

In an interview with the public relations of the Grand Award of Down with USA, Seyyed Masoud Shojaei Tabatabaei highlighted the importance of being in the front line of fighting with arrogance.

The art secretary of this festival also mentioned Imam Khomeini’s precise viewpoint about visual arts and he said: I think the most effective words in the field of visual arts are Imam Khomeini’s words. It is interesting to know that at the time we were university students, my friends and I formed an art group named “Kasni” which was the first artist group after the victory of Islamic revolution.

I think there would be no concepts like those guidelines that can be our models and can motivate us.

Today this ideal and this art has become widespread. As the leader has said that the slogan of “Down with USA” doesn’t only belong to our country. This art also is widespread and many of our dear friends are working in this field.

But the interesting point is that if some of the artists go abroad, their voice will become louder.

Criticizing some revolutionary artists, professor Shojaei referred to the importance of the art and he said:

We need attention in the field of visual art. After 35 years passing the revolution, we still don’t have encyclopedia of revolutionary art. Unfortunately we have seen that some of the authorities have removed the name of famous and popular figures from this encyclopedia. The revolutionary people don’t have enthusiasm to help solving this problem and we hope that these kinds of festivals will help in solving the problems and improving in this field.  

Shojaei added: the US must be considered as the constant enemy of the nations of the world. Referring to some of the activities of arrogant artistic, he said:

We know the US, the world also knows the US. Wherever there is a bad news, America is there.

One of the university Professors in the US had an anti-war exhibition in the university and he announced that we have had 14 wars in the Middle East without having any benefits.

You should know that Ronan Lurie is a Zionist caricaturist in the US. If you search his name you will see that he has participated in several wars for Israel. He proudly says that he has participated in many wars of the world. And interestingly, he has been awarded several time by the UN.
