Muslim Matter

Muslim Matter (2016, Revolver Publishing, Berlin) is a co-edited book resulting from framing muslims, an exhibition I conceived in collaboration with Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies (BGSMCS). Unlike the usual academic anthology, this collection of images, objects and texts adopts design as a crucial tool to materialize the knowledge of visual and material cultures in Muslim life-worlds. It comprises of photographs that researchers at the School have recorded during fieldwork, objects and artefacts that they have brought back from the field and accompanying essays that feature multi-disciplinary perspectives on related themes. Together, they point to the under-considered scenes of life in and across various Muslim contexts, communities and societies.
