Naeem Mohaiemen uses essays, photography and film to explore failed utopias within the historical narratives of the international left. His film Two Meetings and a Funeral (2017), presented at the exhibition Undefined Territories, articulates the momentum and solidarity of the Non-Alignment Movement’s (NAM) leftist ideologies and unravels the flaws that led to its failure.

In this talk, Mohaiemen looks at one of the “marginal” figures of the 1973 NAM conference in Algiers, drawing our attention to moments that hint at future internal conflicts.
