This symposium celebrates the launch of two new anthologies on South Asian photography and cinema. Unframed: Discovering Image Practices in South Asia (Alkazi Foundation for the Arts & HarperCollins Publishers India) and Bombay Talkies: An Unseen History of Indian Cinema (Alkazi Collection of Photography & Mapin Publishing) provoke a renewed look at questions of artistic practice and its relations to collaborative worldmaking, knowledge production, and archival memory.
Join our esteemed panel of speakers–artists, scholars, curators, and filmmakers-as they discuss the histories and futures of lens-based practice in and on South Asia.
