Beginning as an investigation into the apparently disparate events that bookend the twentieth and twenty-first century the collapse of Communism and the Islamic Revolution in Iran  Friendship of Nations: Polish Shiite Showbiz traces unlikely points of convergence in Iran and Polands economic, social, political, religious and cultural histories. Drawing on Slavs and Tatars multi-disciplinary practice encompassing research, installations, lecture-performances and print media, this publication embraces new contributions in the form of essays, interviews, and archival presentation on subjects that range from seventeenth-century Sarmatism to the twenty-first-century Green Movement, taking in along the way, tales of the Polish Exodus, Wojtek the bear, craft, hospitality, Passion plays and taziyeh, and the political lessons of a Polish slow burn revolution for contemporary Iran.
