Naeem Mohaiemen combines films, installations, and essays to research failed left utopias and incomplete decolonizations– framed by Third World Internationalism and World Socialism. The terrain is a “a revolutionary past meaningful in the sudden eruption of a revolutionary present” (Wilson-Goldie). In spite of underscoring a left tendency toward misrecognition, a future international left, against silos of race and religion, is a hope in the work. Project chapters have shown at documenta 14, Kiran Nadar, Ashkal Alwan, Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Sharjah, Marrakech, Nordic, and Venice Biennales, Tate Britain, New Museum, Queens Museum, and MoMA (Doc Fortnight). His essays have been published in Rethinking Marxism, Sun Never Sets, Bioscope South Asian Screen Studies, etc. Naeem is a Ph.D. candidate in Anthropology at Columbia University, researching left histories outside state patronage.
