A man passes by at the entrance to the Keleti train station in Budapest. He doesn’t look Iranian. (For one, he’s blonde.) So why is he wearing a shirt that says “Woman from a Man’s Point of View” in Persian?
When asked, he says he has no idea what the words mean. When he hears the translation, he looks slightly perplexed. His face says: “Who are you? Why are you so excited about some words on a shirt in your language?”
There’s no chance to chat with him. He catches his bus never to be seen again.
This all happens in a matter of seconds.
Questions, questions and more questions.
Who dreamed up these shirts and produced them?
How did they end up in Hungary?
Did this man receive it as a gift?
Did it originally belong to an Iranian in Budapest who donated it to a thrift shop and then this man bought it?
What is the “artist” trying to say? “Woman from a Man’s Point of View”?
Why do we care?
Mystery of mysteries.
