Description

This book underscores the complexity and heterogeneity of various Muslim communities, places where prayer and amusement go hand in hand, and simple pleasures offset the harshness of conflict-ridden environments. Moreover, it offers perspectives on communities in dialogue with non-Muslim majorities, or occasions where a subjects humanness takes precedence over its Muslim-ness. Gathering photographs, objects, and essays as a way to present the overlooked and sometimes underrepresented aspects of everyday life across various Muslim societies, an intriguing presentation of objects, artefacts, and texts reflect on the importance of material and visual cultures.
