Omer Wasim


Omer Wasim (b. 1988, based in Karachi) is an intermedial artist whose practice queers space, subverting the frames of development and progress that shape human relationships to the city and nature. His work bears witness to the relentless erasure, violence and destruction of our times by staying with queer bodies as they hold space and enact desire. He teaches at the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture and was on the editorial board of Hybrid, having edited its third issue.

Wasim’s solo and collaborative projects have been shown at ‘sonsbeek20→24: force times distance—on labour and its sonic ecologies’; Yokohama Triennale; Dhaka Art Summit; Karachi Biennale; and Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, among others.
