learn more about the Alhamdu project here!

“ALHAMDU | MUSLIM FUTURISM” is an evolving experiential art exhibition and digital archive created by MIPSTERZ that explores Muslim Futurism—a cultural and artistic aesthetic that learns from frameworks of Afrofuturism and imagines a broader Muslim future free from the oppression of today, set in a utopic tomorrow of our collective creation.  

We envision a future where we are all free to create a world that is bold, radical, and uniquely our own. We hope to create conversations centered around the following themes:  

Imagination | Identity | Community | Resistance | Liberation​

The "ALHAMDU | MUSLIM FUTURISM" exhibition consists of original MIPSTERZ artwork and contributions from Muslim + Muslim-adjacent + ally artists.

This project is produced by MIPSTERZ and the Center for Afrofuturist Studies at Public Space One, with support from the Ruth Foundation for the Arts, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the ArtsMidwest GIG Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts, and FilmScene.

The MIPSTERZ "ALHAMDU | MUSLIM FUTURISM" exhibition is made possible by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art's Building Bridges Program and the 847 generous backers that jump started the whole thing.
