At the end of May in 2017, there were rumors about the transition of the building of the Art collage in Tehran which is located in Enghelab St. to Sohank alley.Different rumors and opinions were brought up such as things below:This is their job-They want to disperse students from Enghelan St. and the center of the city to a safer place in terms of politics and social, to control them.-This is a project to extend the University of Tehran. The enactment of building Danesh town was authorized in 2003, with the purpose of extending the Tehran University’s ownership of properties.-The authorities acknowledged that: the goal of this transition is to construct an individual academic area that fits the dignity of students.And there was tones of other rumors and doubts that felt upon the students of art.
At the end, the summer of 2018 was gone through ambiguity and know while I’m writing this text and you’re reading it, the Photography building of the Art University was completely moved to the Sohank and the Velayat complex forever.
Osko is the name of an alley in Enghelab St. And the photography collage was located there independent from the rest of the majors of art. This was one of the reasons I got back to the university campus for the second time.From the first day I started doing photography homework, I was and still is very interested in taking photos of my surroundings and common subjects and actually one of these common subject was the place I studied in, the Osko University.A six floor building made with 3cm blocks and narrow halls, nested labs, lifts that has the capacity of carrying 4 people, mixed dining rooms, segregated restrooms, balcony that smoking rolled joint were allowed and of course chapels to rest in them- and the 32 class.This collection is for all of the people that lived in every single block of Osko from 2003 till now.or at least they are the voice of mine, I lived in osko for 2 years, I learned, felt happy and sad.this photos were taken from all of the angles and stages that I can witness my hole life and I can breath Osko through it my whole life. Osko was a building and even through a metaphore, the stories and events of it were quite similar to the world and society I lived in and I'm still living it and will be in it.
