MTL is a collective based in New York that combines research, aesthetics and activism with artistic practice. It includes artist and organizer Nitasha Dhillon and Amin Husain, lawyer, artist and organizer.


MTL builds on the experiences and movement-generated theory produced recently to deepen solidarity, foster shared analysis, and produce formations that allow groups to retain the specificities of their struggles in coalition while moving together and separately towards decolonial freedom.

Using verbs like “decolonize” and “unsettle” as a practice of living, thinking and doing, MTL explores the process blurring the lines between art and activism, culture and politics, organizing and aesthetics and moving towards de-occupying spaces by exercising epistemic disobedience, rearranging relations, and challenging power to create space for imagination.
