Shirin

I think the true heroine of Fate/stay night is Rin. In the Rin route, an equal relationship with a woman who’s become stronger than men is depicted. Rin and Shirou mend each other’s weaknesses with their own unique strengths, and I think it makes for a very nice relationship.
—  Gen Urobuchi on Fate Stay Night roles and relationships in the Type Moon 10th anniversary interview.

Crossing Borders: Shirin Neshat

Internationally recognized artist Shirin Neshat came to the US from Iran as a teenager to study. This two-channel video, made following her first trip back to Iran after the Iranian Revolution forced her into exile for over a decade, is a poignant reflection on both the transformation of Iranian society after the Revolution, and the dual mindset created by life in exile.

Our digital exhibition “Crossing Borders,” presented as part of our #CitizensBorders initiative, showcases works from MoMA’s collection by artists who immigrated to the U.S., often as #refugees in search of safe haven. Explore all the works atmo.ma/crossingborders #MoMACollection
