Seen and Unseen explores how visual mediums construct visual cultures that create limited perspectives of issues and groups, specific to this volume, the representation of Islam and Muslims. It deals with fixed and stereotypical visual representations and explores alternative and challenging representations that are reconstructing existing belief systems.
