The Islamic Revolution of 1979 influenced the production of visual culture in Iran. This article reflects on the postrevolutionary emerging languages of visual culture through its multiple channels of circulation. It argues that the circulation of these productions and an interconnection of media types help us understand the emerging sensus communis, a new possibility for a shared understanding of sense perception, that is coming out of various places, different technologies, and emerging forms.
