Naeem Mohaiemen works with film, installation and essays. His practice investigates transnational socialist politics after the Second World War. This period was framed by decolonisation and the erasing of political utopias.
Mohaiemen combines autobiography and history to explore how national borders create new peoples. His material includes the film archives and the way their contents can be lost, fabricated and reanimated. The hope for a future international left, instead of alliances of race and religion, animate his work.
