Curator KB19, Muhammad Zeeshan has solo exhibition with Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, Berlin, that is opening on Thursday from 6:30-9:00PM in Berlin. This new body of work brings to our attention maps of refugee settlements and reclaimed areas in Karachi and other cities in Pakistan, transformed into artworks by Muhammad Zeeshan. Exploring urban development and questions of land ownership, Zeeshan illuminates not just a localised issue, but also the universal and continual suffering of millions of people. The number of people escaping from ongoing conflicts, prosecution or war has never been higher, almost being doubled in the last 10 years. With his solo exhibition ‘Serving with White Gloves’ at Kristin Hjellegjerde Berlin, Zeeshan presents a new body of work set against the backdrop of this worldwide current topic where refugees are confronted over years and decades with an ongoing inability to find humane living conditions. #KB19 #KarachiBiennale #CuratorKB19 ...
