Part of our 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.

GHT.2058: Asylo-جنّت will be on display at GHT from Saturday 24th June until Sunday 13th August and is free to visit.

We will also be hosting a launch exhibition on Saturday 24th June. Find out more and get tickets on our eventbrite page.

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.

Bijan was selected for the EOP Members Show at the Eastside Projects (Birmingham) where he realised his ‘Disco Islam: Future Phantasmagoria’ exhibition in 2022. He has also presented his work at V.O Curations, London (2022), AD/AD Project Space, Hanover (2021), The Nunnery Gallery, London (2020), Delfina Foundation, London (2019), Forecast Forum, Berlin (2019), The Art House, Wakefield (2017), Sazmanab Project, Tehran (2010) and Azad Art Gallery, Tehran (2010), among others.
