Transmutational input is an audio video installation in honour of On one-year anniversary of Jina Mahsa Amini’s death in custody or the brutal Iranian regime in response to her improper state mandatory Hijab, and more specifically the heightened repression of women and girls and reprisals against protesters and victims’ families or the protests that ensued in the last year following the incident which sparked a worldwide outcry. 

One year after nationwide protests began in Iran following the death in custody of 22-year-old Jina Mahsa Amini, State harassment of women and girls is on the rise. Authorities are exacerbating punitive measures against those exercising their fundamental rights, including freedom of religion, freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, the Independent International Fact-Finding Mission on the Islamic Republic of Iran warned today. Jina Mahsa was arrested and forced into a van by Iran’s “morality police” in Tehran on 13 September 2022 for alleged non-observance of Iran’s law on mandatory veiling. She died in custody on 16 September. Her death sparked a wave of protests throughout the country. According to information received, which is under investigation by the Fact-Finding Mission, the State responded to the protests with unnecessary and disproportionate force, arbitrary arrests and detentions, unfair trials, extra-judicial executions and harassment of family members of victims, which continues until today.
