Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth is an investigation into histories of popular resistance, guerrilla warfare, and anti-imperialism in SASWANA (South Asia, Southwest Asia, North Africa) that are re-interpreted to create an archive of a speculative revolution in a post-human world. Employing textile-based installations, video works, and performances, Bhutto uses Islam as a vehicle to propel a queer futurist imagination that is anti-imperialist and draws on occult and mystic practices to create new worlds.
Watch the video and scroll through the images to engage with this installation virtually.
You can experience Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth in person at YBCA in the windows facing the Gardens.
