Azadi Tower displaying three decades of stamp collecting

TEHRAN, Aug. 24 (MNA) -- An exhibition of stamps published after the Islamic Revolution in Iran opened with a ceremony at the Islamic Revolution Cultural Center in Tehran’s Azadi Tower on Sunday.

“Unfortunately, we did not try to convey the achievements of the Islamic revolution through art, which is a more influential way to get our message across in the modern world,” said Deputy Culture Minister for Artistic Affairs Mohammad-Hossein Imani Khoshkhu.

 

“Fine arts, cinema and the dramatic arts are appropriate means to feature ideas and concepts that affect the young generation by their profound nature,” he added.

 

“Postage stamps should not be considered as entertainment. They should be regarded as messengers of the achievements of the Islamic revolution to the world,” Deputy Communications Minister for International Affairs Kamal Mahamedpur said during the ceremony.

 

Entitled “The Messengers of Vigilance”, the exhibit is cosponsored by the Islamic Revolution Cultural Center, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, the Communication Museum, the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, and the Rudaki Foundation.
