    DescriptionTravel through the heartlands of Sufism with the hypnotic images of Iason Athanasiadis.
    SUFISM: Mystical Ecumenism is a visual journey through Bilad ash-Sham, Khorassan and the Punjab chronicling the movement and rhythm of zikr, the ecstatic ceremony practiced by Sufi orders around the Muslim World.

    Shot by photojournalist and 2008 Harvard Nieman fellow Iason Athanasiadis in present-day Iran, Pakistan, Syria and Turkey, it documents the extraordinary diversity of a mystical Islam gaining in popularity in the West but worryingly absent from media coverage of the world’s most controversial religion.

    The exhibition runs 5 February through 31 March at Harvard’s Center for Government and International Studies

    Opening: 5 February 2008, 17:00-19:00
    Center for Government and International Studies (South Building), Harvard University, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, 02138

    The Dunya Ensemble will perform music from Islam’s mystical traditions at 18.30 in the Tsai Auditorium
    Opening reception sponsored by the ILEX Foundation
