Apologies for cross posting

Dear colleagues

I want your help and assistance in a post-graduate matter. We have a PhD student working on "Women Video Artists of the Middle East" as her dissertation topic. Initially we were able to get some of the works. Now we hit a wall. Although we have seen this body of work in different art galleries around the world, we cannot access them for academic study. So far we could reach some of Shirin Neshat's work but the majority of her works remain inaccessible online. Here is the list:

Shirin Neshat's unavailable videos
       Anchorage 1996
       The Shadow under the Web (1997)
       Rapture (1999)
       Soliloquy (1999)
       Fervor (2000)
        Pulse (2001),
       Passage (2001),
        Possessed (2001)
       Tooba (2002),
        Mahdokht (2004)
       Games of Desire (2009)
       Zarin, 2005. Single channel video/audio installation.
       Munis, 2008. Color video/audio installation
       Faezeh, 2008. Color video/audio installation
       Possession, 2009. Black & white video/audio installation.

Here is what I would like to ask you to do:

1. If your university library has a copy of any of the items above, please email me privately so that we try to get a copy of the video.

2. If you have access to museum and art gallery curators who might have access to Neshat's work, could you please email me their contact info so that we can reach them?

Thanks for your help
