The researchers connected with the Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies investigate the plurality, changeability, and global connectedness of Muslim cultures and societies. Special attention is given to relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, as well as forms of inter- and intra-cultural communication. The exhibition curators Omar Kasmani from Karachi in Pakistan and Stefan Maneval from Berlin represent the broad range of research on the regional and cultural contexts of Islam at BGSMCS. Kasmani does research on body and gender issues among contemporary Sufis in the province of Sindh in Pakistan, and Maneval works on architecture in present-day Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
