- Interact With Art
16th August 2013
Speakers: Anita Dube, Mithu Sen, Gayatri Sinha, Bharti Kher, Tejal Shah
Moderators: Gayatri Sinha
Discussant: Roobina Karode
The discussion explored the relationship artists have with the body which has veered away from the historically locked, the feminist and the aesthetic space, and has begun the process of devolving by inhabiting unanticipated terrains. The body through these unchartered courses encounters and gains from social, political and economic pressures. These new journeys explore the new possibilities of performativity within women’s personal histories. The artistic practices of these women artists witness them making very strong positions through placement of language, texts and signs.
This was Part I of the seventh symposium in the Museum Document series, curated by Gayatri Sinha.
