Within German 20th century art, the graphic artist, illustrator, painter and writer Caspar Walter Rauh (1912-1983) is an outsider who has not yet received the attention that he deserves. The critical exploration of his oeuvre is still at an early stage. Since Rauh started his career as an artist during the years of World War II, his work has unsettled viewers as he juxtaposes representations of the most frightening and traumatizing events of the epoch with joyful scenes of escapism into idyllic “alternate” worlds and into humour.

Six international conventions to combat the so-called “Mädchenhandel”, “white slavery”, “traffic in women” and “human trafficking” were adopted over the course of the 20th century. During the first half of the 20th century the issue received political and public attention to a degree as to make it possible to regulate it through international law. Five of the six international conventions were adopted between 1904 and 1949, while the last one was signed only in 2000.

Hijab, censorship, a chauvinistic sense of superiority over Arabs, an ancient culture, the monumental Persepolis, clerics, the Islamic Revolution. The grid is probably enough to bring Iran into public or even scholarly mind in the contemporary world. But does this picture do justice to this nation-state and its diversity of cultures? Besides a psychological desire and a quest for the exotic, discursive representations and stereotypes have shaped the occidental understanding of the orient and the global conceptualization of Iran.
