In September 2018, FOCUS association has organized the artistic exchange "Lonely Planet" between Switzerland and Iran.
In partnership with the art and design space Platform 28 located in Tehran, this project aims to foster cultural relations between Switzerland and Iran. Three Swiss artists enthusiastically accepted the challenge: the photographer and video maker Lisa Roehrich from Vevey, the two founders of Atlas Studio Jonas Wandeler from Fribourg and his partner Martin Andereggen from Zurich. Dialogue and sharing of ideas were encouraged during a week with the Iranian film maker Shiva Sanjiri and the graphic designers from Studio Kargah, Aria Kasei and Ashkan Forootan. Â© Lisa Roehrich
