Join Ali Asgar, a transdisciplinary artist and cultural producer, and Tuhin Das, a poet, activist, and political columnist, as they discuss their experiences leaving Bangladesh, living in the US as displaced artists, and how displacement has affected their creative work.
Asgar will present their current project “No One Home”, a work constructed around the concept of human interactivity, displacement, trauma, and queer identity. The key intention of this interactive performance piece is to find the meaning of home and belonging. Tuhin will read an excerpt from his forthcoming poetry manuscript. The discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
The event will be presented in Bengali, with simultaneous interpretation into English.
The event is presented in collaboration with PEN America and the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC).
