Naeem Mohaiemen (shobak.org) is a writer and artist working in Dhaka and New York. He uses text, photography and video to explore histories of the international left and utopia-dystopia slippage.

Projects have shown at Gallery Chitrak (Dhaka), Experimenter (Kolkata), Third Line (Dubai), Transmediale (Berlin), Shedhalle (Zurich), Finnish Museum of Photography, Whitney Biennial (Visible Collective group project in "Wrong Gallery"), etc. He will show next at Frieze Art Fair 2010 and Sharjah Biennial 2011.

His essays include "Islamic Roots of Hip Hop" (Sound Unbound, MIT Press, DJ Spooky ed.; runner up for Villem Flusser Theory Award), "Everybody Wants To Be Singapore" (Carlos Motta's La Buena Vida, Art In General), "AdMan Blues" (Indian Highway, Hans Ulrich Obrist ed, Serpentine Gallery), "Mujtaba Ali: Amphibian Man" (Manifesta 7 European Biennial, Rana Dasgupta ed.),"Beirut, Silver Porsche Illusion" (Men of the Global South, Zed Books), "Why Mahmud Can't Be a Pilot" (Nobody Passes, Seal Press), "No Exit" (with Glenn Urieta, Secret Identities: Asian Superhero Comics, New Press), etc

Naeem also works on activist projects in Bangladesh. He writes the chapter on religious and ethnic minorities in the Ain Salish Kendro Annual Human Rights report (askbd.org) and the Daily Star newspaper (thedailystar.net). Working between two countries, this work explores contradictions between Bengalis in marginal migrant status in Northern countries, and majoritarian (and authoritarian) status inside Bangladesh. As part of this work, the film "Muslims or Heretics: My Camera Can Lie" was screened for an ancillary meeting of EU Human Rights Commission at the UK House of Lords.

Naeem studied Economics and History, and was a Thomas J. Watson Fellow on an oral history of the 1971 Bangladesh genocide.

Born 1969 and now works in Dhaka and New York
