People of the Book traces western perceptions of Islam. The project spans from colonial contacts with the Arab world to contemporary representations of Muslim immigrants in Europe. The project functions in the intersection between post-colonialism and feminism, mapping out common interests as well as productive tensions between the two. The piece is divided into four sections: Imperial Imaginaries, Translation Of Culture, Discourse On The Body, and Race vs. Culture. The work was originally commissioned for the exhibition Minority Report in Aarhus, Denmark 2004.
