Mythological Migrations: Imagining Queer Muslim Utopias is a three-year artistic research project that examines formations of queer identity and resistance in Muslim migratory contexts. Drawing on Islamic mythological ideas through a Sufi framework, and employing artistic and curatorial strategies of organization and collaboration, the project responds to an urgent need to recognize queer Muslim voices, challenging rampant Islamophobia in Europe (and the West at large), and re-imagining spaces of exclusion and fetishization.
Conceived and curated by Abdullah Qureshi, Mythological Migrations: Imagining Queer Muslim Utopias is his doctoral dissertation at Aalto University and funded by Kone Foundation, Finland.
