Falgoush - Paris Ass Book Fair

Falgoush (est. 2019) is an experimental publishing and curatorial project that explores Iranian narratives of identity and belonging. Borrowing its name from a long-forgotten New Year’s Eve ritual of divinatory eavesdropping, Falgoush seeks unconventional cultural modes of perception, expression, and insight to dispel the darkness of remaining unheard and unseen. Critical commentary and discursive aesthetics weave through offbeat, existential explorations of overlooked themes, unexpected collaborations, and counter-archives in order to occupy the mainstream. Most of all, Falgoush aspires to make shared experiences known, mobilize transdisciplinary connections beyond oppressive borders, and build collectively into a space of solidarity, community, and cultural exchange.
