Mythological Migrations: Imagining Queer Muslim Utopias by Abdullah Qureshi

  • Talks and Debates

Mythological Migrations: Imagining Queer Muslim Utopias, conceived and curated by Abdullah Qureshi, is a three-year multidisciplinary project that contextualizes narratives and experiences of LGBTIQ+ Muslim immigrants in Finland in Islamic mythologies, history, and contemporary art. The talk focuses on the project's artistic components, Chapter 1: The Nightclub, a one-night exhibit that investigates the nightclub as a site of methodology, focusing on artistic approaches investigating queerness and Islam in a migratory context, and Chapter 2: The Darkroom that addresses histories of brown and black bodies being fetishized from a racially white lens.
