Between Memory and Museum
This pioneering dialogue with 38 extraordinary folk and tribal artists from across India focuses on the idea of a museum — particularly for communities historically regarded as anthropological subjects. In their visual responses, artists reflect on the museum as an institution, and the way it preserves creates, and disseminates knowledge. Do these representations communicate a lived life? What are the artists’ own ways of remembering and passing on tradition? And finally: who has the power to put whom in a museum? Artists featured in this book include several award-winners of extraordinary talent, including Bhajju Shyam, Durga Bai, Jagdish Chitara, and Bhaddu Hamir. Each of these artists has exhibited in India and elsewhere, being featured in exhibitions of outsider and folk art from India.
