Zulfikar Ali Bhutto: Tomorrow We Inherit The Earth


Description

Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth is an investigation into histories of popular resistance, guerrilla warfare and anti-imperialism in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia that are then re-interpreted into an archive of an imagined revolution in a post-utopian and post-human world. In this series, Islam is used as vehicle to propel the futurist imagination, looking into its occult practices, mysticism and the evolution of its politicization.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (b. Damascus, 1990) is a visual artist, performer and curator. Bhutto’s work resurrects complex histories in the South Asian, South West Asian and North African region. In the process he unpacks the intersections of queerness, Islam, speculative fiction, futurity and environmental degrdeation through a multi-media practice rooted in printmaking, textile work and performance. Bhutto has performed, shown work and curated exhibitions globally, as well as spoken extensively on the intersections of faith, radical thought and futurity at Columbia University, UC Berkeley, NYU, Stanford and the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture. Bhutto is currently based in Karachi, Pakistan and received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2016.
