Anish Kapoor: 'If I was an angry young Muslim, I would think about joining Isis'

Britain has gone through the looking glass and the artist’s new show follows it into the abyss. He talks about the upsurge in racism, fighting for Shamima Begum – and his clash with France’s presidentAt 7.30 on the morning after Britain voted to leave the European Union, Anish Kapoor left his London flat for an appointment with his analyst. On the street, he heard two men talking. “Bet he doesn’t even speak English,” said one. “I turned around and they were talking about me. I was so furious.”Si...

Anish Kapoor: 'If I was a young Muslim, would I feel angry enough to join Isis? I would at least think about it'

Explaining ‘The Satanic Verses’ — Any Why We Won’t Be Seeing Anything Like It For A While

“The increasing prominence of radical Islam, or Islam as a political force, is obviously one factor. The other factor, especially in the West, is the increasing emphasis on culture and ethnicity, religion included, as a means of self-definition. … Rushdie’s satirical look at religion comes across quite differently when Islam is conceived of as an identity. What began as a critique of ideas is taken as an insult to a group, and often a marginalised group, at that.” – Aeon

Why Would Writers Sign Morality Clauses For Twitter?

“Off the top of my head, too-hot-to-handle topics now include anything to do with gender, sex, race, immigration, disability, social class, obesity and Islam (surely that list is too short). Writers who sign contracts with morality clauses would naturally shy from expressing views that depart from the dominant political orthodoxy, lest whole manuscripts be rejected and their advances be withdrawn.” – The Spectator

Major Cultural Figures In China’s Xinjiang Province Are Disappearing Into Uyghur Prison Camps

“Since April 2017, an estimated one million of Xinjiang’s 11 million Uyghur population” — including most of its Uyghur artists and writers — “have disappeared into what the government calls ‘re-education’ camps, without recourse or documentation, where they are reportedly tortured into denouncing Islam and their Uyghur identity, and accepting Communist Party rule and Han Chinese dominance.” — The Art Newspaper

In A Europe Disturbed By Anti-Muslim Sentiment, This Exhibit Makes A Statement

The Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy, is acknowledging the way the Italian Renaissance depended on – and exchanged ideas and goods with – Muslim countries. The exhibit is a “scholarly riposte” to a world in which, “today, Italians have little exposure to the Islamic world beyond the Muslims living in their midst — many of them recent immigrants — and media reports of Mideast wars and Islamist-inspired terrorism. That tense context has led some to associate Islam with violence and spawned anti-M...

When 77 hats do the lotus position: the cosmic world of Younes Rahmoun

On a journey around the bustling, sun-filled medina of his hometown, the Moroccan artist – a contender for the Jameel prize – shows our writer where he finds inspirationOn a bright spring day, the artist Younès Rahmoun is showing me around his home town of Tétouan, a city in Morocco at the foot of the Rif mountains. Inside the medina – the old walled area and a Unesco world heritage site – he spots a bead on the ground. It’s small, plastic and the least interesting thing I can see. Nearby, men i...

The Power Of Seeing Yourself On Screen

As a young perceptive boy, I looked for myself in almost everything I came into contact with. I was among countless other youth who saw characters from comic books and tv shows as symbols of triumph, of wherewithal. Like the Supermans, Spidermans and Wolverines, almost all depictions of Islamic fortitude were mostly attributed to people I could not identify with, given the complexities of race, ethnicity, and culture. What these stories narrate, after a brief life of absorbing them, is from ...

The Complex Geometry of Islamic Art & Design: A Short Introduction

When you think of the accomplishments of the Islamic world, what comes to mind? For most of this century so far, at least in the West, the very notion has had associations in many minds with not creation but destruction. In 2002, mathematician Keith Devlin lamented how "the word Islam conjures up images of fanatical terrorists flying jet airplanes full of people into buildings full of even more people" and "the word Baghdad brings to mind the unscrupulous and decidedly evil dictator Sadd...

Ancient city discovered in Ethiopia offers new insight into country's history

Archaeological research in Ethiopia has largely centered around early humans, but there’s more to the country’s past than just our origins.

God Meets Human: The Amir Shakib Arslan Mosque by L.E.FT Architects

Mosque architecture in the Arab world famously incorporates intricate geometries and spiritual symbolism, which have evolved as a result of Islam’s ban of figurative imagery. A new mosque for the village of Moukhtara in Lebanon reinterprets this tradition, deploying minimalism and contemporary means and materials to celebrate Islam’s humanist values, as well as man’s constant search for the...

Three Years After A Car Bomb Damaged It, A Cairo Museum Reopens

The museum houses more than 9500 pieces of Islamic art from all over the Islamic world. One professor of Islamic art history: "'I think the reopening of the museum is extremely important because there's been so much negative propaganda' about Islam, she says. 'I think it will show people that this was one of the most advanced cultures — and how better to see it than through art?'"

You May Take Rumi Out Of Islam, But You Can't Take Islam Out Of Rumi. Yet Westerners Keep Trying

"Rumi is often described as the best-selling poet in the United States. He is typically referred to as a mystic, a saint, a Sufi, an enlightened man. Curiously, however, although he was a lifelong scholar of the Koran and Islam, he is less frequently described as a Muslim." Why is this, and when did it start? Rozina Ali has some answers.

Shirin Neshat’s best photograph: an Iranian woman with a gun in her hair

‘We often think of women with an Islamic background as being passive and submissive to men, but here they are empowered by bearing arms’This is my friend and muse, an artist called Arita Shahrzad. When it comes to capturing nuance and sadness, she has the perfect lips and eyes. I don’t actually take the pictures I produce. I’ve used photography for a long time, but I’m not technically trained. My role is more conceptual. I do the composition, the framing, the post-production and calligraphy. I’v...

Australian Islamic Centers lantern-like skylights flood worship space with multi-hued light

  The mosque’s unique rooftop array is its most notable architectural feature, comprised of rows of prism-shaped skylights set with multi-colored panes. Daylight filters in through the roof, adding soft washes of light to the mosque’s interior in an unexpected way. When architecture meets sculpture in this way, buildings are elevated to high art, and Murcutt’s first mosque project in Melbourne is a prime example. Related: Zaha Hadid Architects' Melbourne high-rise will use 50 percent less ener...

Gilgamesh was real, so all Sumerian Gods are as well!

Granted, this is a rather sensationalist headline and I freely admit, it has only a very remote connection to the article here, but there is a certain truth to it. I would not be surprized if a fair number of Sumerian gods originally were real people who got deified in the course of ancestor worship or because several real people got mashed into one through oral history mix-ups and other factors. Gilgamesh, the main character of the Epic of Gilgamesh, is now no longer regarded as a mythological ...

Drama in the age of Prevent: why can't we move beyond Good Muslim v Bad Muslim?

Our play about the radicalisation of young Muslims was pulled. But the National Theatre’s is going ahead – with no censorship or police intervention. Why can’t Muslims tell their own stories?Last year, using actors drawn from all over the country, we created Homegrown, a large-scale play that set out to examine the radicalisation of young British Muslims. Halfway through rehearsals, the National Youth Theatre pulled the plug, despite the fact that that it had approached us with the original idea...

Interview on NPR on Riyaaz Qawwali

He believes this American group is bringing the music back to its roots. "You know, I think there's been so much concern about what is Islam, and what isn't, politically speaking and artistically speaking," Rashid says, "that there's been a push in modern qawwali to actua...

Cameron and Muslim women: a new twist on an old colonial story | Madeleine Bunting

It’s a deeply unsettling reminder of a past that the British have made an art of half-forgetting.This is painting by the square metre: huge canvases to demonstrate the struggle and the glory o...
