Wachtel on the Arts

Shirin Neshat is the most famous Iranian artist in the world, even though she's spent a large part of her adult life in exile. Her work is both intensely personal and intensely political, dealing with Iranian identity, Islamic society, and the role of women in both. Eleanor Wachtel, host of Writers & Company, talks to Shirin Neshat about growing up in pre-revolutionary Iran, her work as an artist, and why it's a deep expression of her own conflicted relationship with her homeland.
