This event is part of our Past Programme

Artist Mahtab Hussain’s work looks at important themes around immigration, representation, self-hood and the power of the gaze through portraiture. In this new talk he will discuss the important role collaboration plays in responding to the poor visibility and stereotyping of Muslims communities globally and the critical position photography holds in having different conversations that challenge and uplift the understanding of a community that has felt silent and muzzled.
