Baghawat is an Amsterdam-based independent journal that deals with politics and art. We aim to move beyond and actively dissect the Western gaze by bringing into view critical perspectives and lived experiences that challenge the dominant narrative. In Urdu, baghawat means resistance. We embrace and embody that idea. Instead of passively offering articles for readers’ consumption, we stress the importance of coming together as a collective, to activate each other, to offer possibilities. Therefore, apart from periodical articles, Baghawat will also organize (covid safe) meet-ups, where the ideas within the issues can find their way into our lived world.
