Abstract 本文藉由伊朗禁樂政策反思宗教、政治、藝術競合衍生之問題。
1979 年伊朗革命之後,實施了禁樂政策,禁止西方音樂在國內的傳播。禁止西樂的理由,表面上是為了避免心靈的墮落,維護伊斯蘭的精神。實際上是為了鞏固統治,這又是政府禁止西樂的真正目的。伊朗政府關心政權的正統性,而禁止西樂有助於正統性的維護。禁樂的結果,成效有限。西方流行音樂活動轉入地下。

This paper reflects on integrative issues resulting from religion, politics, and art through examining Iran’s ban on music.
After the 1979 revolution in Iran, some music has been banned from public life, and Western music is particularly forbidden in the country. The purpose of censoring Western music is to prevent spiritual debauchery and to uphold the Islamic ethos. However, the true objective for the government to ban Western music is actually for the regime to maintain control. The Iranian government pays close attention to the orthodoxy of the regime and believes that the censoring of Western music is beneficial in preserving the orthodoxy. However, the effects of the music censorship have been limited, and activities involving Wester popular music have consequently turned underground.
Several issues could be reflected on from Iran’s music censorship. Firstly, art is essentially free, and the value of art is constructed. The condemnation of music is merely a constructed concept and does not hold absolute significance. There are no absolute standards when it comes to art. Secondly, the banning of music in Iran reflects conflicts between spiritual protection and spiritual restriction, and the key with this lies in whether or not the censorship enforcer is compassionate towards those that the ban is being enforced upon and whether a consensus has been developed between the two. Thirdly, the banning of music brings up the conflicting issue with whether art should be controlled by the state or by religion, or it should be a choice that is opened for individual discretion. Since the value of art is constructed by individuals; therefore, art should not be forcibly controlled by any autocratic regime. Fourthly, the banning of music highlights the push and pull between religious ideology and the supremacy of art. However, moral values that are pursued in religion are also a construction. Art should not be confined by such constructed values. And fifth, Iran’s music censorship prompts us to consider the choices between cultural resistance and cultural understanding. Similarities are shared by different cultures, and instead of resisting, different cultures should seek to understand and respect one another.
