Expounding upon her interest in cultural history and displacement, Rummana Hussain has created an installation using visual elements such as photography, Indian cloth, and a short film, as well as texts taken from social and political histories. With this installation she addresses the image and role of the Muslim woman, challenging the stereotypes projected by the media and the West.
