Naeem Mohaiemen uses essays, photography, and film to explore borders, wars, and belonging within Bangladesh’s two postcolonial markers (1947/1971). From 2002-06, he was a member of Visible Collective, whose project Disappeared in America originated from the “Fatal Love: South Asian American Art Now“ exhibition in Queens Museum in 2004-05. He has written essays for Raqs Media Collective edited issues of Sarai Reader, and is working with CAMP on a 1971 interview archive for Pad.Ma.
During a walk-through of the current exhibition “After Midnight: Indian Modernism To Contemporary India 1947/1997,” curated by Dr. Arshiya Lokhandwala, Naeem will discuss the video works of Raqs Media Collective, CAMP, and Desire Machine Collective.
