IIAS Lecture: Post-exotic India On Remixed Histories and Smart Images in the Contemporary Global

May 12, 2015 - 15:30-16:30

Lecture by Dr Ravinder Kaur.
 
In this lecture Dr Kaur discusses the aesthetics of remixing history at the heart of the neoliberal project of India’s image makeover as ‘land of limitless opportunity’ for global tourists and investors. She argues that the project of remixing India’s history is predicated upon the ontological fault line of how to retain and erase the original simultaneously while shaping the new in the contemporary global.
