Access Information

Duchamp & Sons x Mohammed Z. Rahman

Since January 2024 Duchamp & Sons, Whitechapel Gallery’s youth collective, has been collaborating with artist Mohammed Z. Rahman. 

Through experimentations ranging from scene-making to storyboarding, from writing to collaging and beyond, the collective have been working to explore ideas of personal histories, temporary homes and spaces of sanctuary.

Join us for this drop-in event where you can spend time exploring and adding to one of the collective’s recent creations — an installation piece featuring dioramas depicting domestic scenes, both imagined and real.

Spend time with us and create your own dioramas to add to our growing cardboard-box commune. We welcome you to relax in our studio space, find out more about our process of collaborating with Mohammed Z. Rahman, and to share your own perspectives on home, sanctuary and displacement.

This is a drop in event. All ages are welcome.

About Mohammed Z. Rahman

Mohammed Z Rahman (he/they) is a British-Bengali visual artist and writer based in London. His work puts socio-political and personal histories in conversation through the lens of the domestic. Mohammed’s visual output includes illustration, painting and zines. His literary output includes short stories, poetry and essays.

With a background in social anthropology (BA, SOAS), Mohammed approaches art as an intimate and political force probing and mutating the ordinary. Drawing on dreamscapes, globality, queerness, biography and socio-historical perspectives, he creates work that celebrates his communities’ internationalist dreams, disrupts violent power structures and makes peace with unspeakable chaos.
