GHT.2058: Asylo-جنّت Exhibition Launch

24 June @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us as we celebrate the launch of our latest exhibition, GHT.2058: Asylo-جنّت: a major new commission by London-based Iranian multimedia artist Bijan Moosavi.

About the exhibition

Part of ‘a space’ arts’ Art for Climate Action Programme, this immersive exhibition submerges the viewer in a fictional near-future climate dystopia created by neoliberal negligence and greed. Comprised of various materials and media hinting at climate catastrophes, science fiction dystopias, marketing overhype and Islamic Kitsch, the exhibition is a portal into a deeply neoliberal refugee centre from the year 2058, which houses Middle Eastern asylum seekers displaced due to a global failure in dealing with the climate crisis.

About the event

Celebrate the launch and listen to the artist, Bijan Moosavi, give a short talk about his work, influences and process behind GHT.2058: Asylo-جنّت.

The bar will be open throughout the evening serving drinks and light refreshments.

Saturday 24th June 6pm – 9pm at God’s House Tower

About the artist

Bijan Moosavi is an Iranian multimedia artist based in London. He makes films, installations, music and performances which look at the impact of neoliberalism from a Middle Eastern point of view. Bijan’s work draws upon the aesthetics of corporate advertising, sci-fi movies, popular culture and the Islamic Kitsch in order to tell dystopian tales from speculative futures drowned in deep neoliberalism.
