"From the daily media beat-ups, to outright racist leadership taunts directed at Muslims, this modern day Orientalism relentlessly depicts Islamo-fascist terrorists, creeping Shariah and the fantasy of infantilised Muslim women," it says.

Curator Phillip George told SBS News the exhibition offers the chance for Australians to get "outside the Anglo-Saxon dome and start to look at the world with a new vision, a new way of seeing reality".
