Anahita Razmi: White Wall Tehran, 2007. Video, 0:45 min, image courtesy the artist and OtherIS.

On her trip to Iran in January 2007, the artist was stopped on the street in Tehran by the Iranian revolutionary guards because she had been filming them. They erased 27 seconds of her video by filming the white inner wall of their headquarters. The re-recorded footage is devoid of figures, but filled with sounds: a radio transceiver, somebody stirring coffee, music playing.
