Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth: Revealing Queer Muslim Futures

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Performances by Faluda Islam, Maryam Rostami, Luke Arroyo Mendoza, and Saba Taj.

The Muslim body has become one of the most contested spaces in the United States and is both a sight of violence and inquiry. In response to the West’s oversimplified understanding of Islam, this futurist evening uses fashion, performance, video, sound art, and music to explore and challenge the histories of violence, colonialism, and imperialism enacted on Muslim bodies. Organized by artist and performer Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (aka Faluda Islam) in collaboration with Arshia Haq, Hushidar Mortezaie, Laylatul Qadr, and Saba Taj, Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth presents a complex queer Muslim future and post-utopian world in which ‘monsters’-- Queer creatures evolved to fight Western Imperialism and survive in a toxic world ravaged by apocalypse—reveal themselves and the messages received from intergalactic refugees waiting to inherit a better earth.

Stay for the after party with DJ Arshia Haq and Discostan, a party that merges together art and musical narratives from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay.
