Naeem Mohaiemen: There Is No Last Man

MoMA PS1, 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City

The exhibition brings together two video installation by Naeem Mohaiemen (b. London, 1969). In his films the artist researches memories of leftist political utopias, and the contemporary legacies of decolonization.

The first work is titled “Tripoli Cancelled “(2017), a fiction film inspired by the artist’s father which follows the daily rituals of a man stranded in an abandoned airport. The latter is “Volume Eleven (flaw in the algorithm of cosmopolitanism)“(2016) and investigates six problematic essays by Mohaiemen’s great uncle, the Bengali writer Syed Mujtaba Ali, who mistakenly embraced German military might as an antidote to British colonial rule in India.
