AMT Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Naeem Mohaiemen

6:15 p.m.

The Visiting Artists Lecture Series is sponsored by the School of Art, Media, and Technology (AMT) at Parsons The New School for Design. Organized by Coco Fusco, director of Intermedia Initiatives at AMT, the series invites renowned artists from around the world to give free public presentations each Wednesday.

Naeem Mohaiemen uses essays, photography, and film to explore histories of the international left, hyphenated migrant identities, and utopia-dystopia slippage. His work as part of Visible Collective was a series of database sculptures, event timelines, and public seminars which traveled internationally, including the Whitney Biennial of American Art (in Wrong Gallery) and L'Institut de Islam, Paris. Since 2006, he has been working on The Young Man Was, a research project about the 1970s Bangladeshi ultra-left, with each chapter realized in a different medium. Naeem is editor of Chittagong Hill Tracts in the Blind Spot of Bangladesh Nationalism, an anthology of 75 essays on ethnic conflict between indigenous Jumma people and Bengali Settlers in southeast Bangladesh. Other publications include Collectives in Atomised Time (with Doug Ashford, Idensitat Press) and System Error: war is a force that gives us meaning (with Lorenzo Fusi, Silvana).
