The Insurrection ‘46 Project: Vivan Sundaram, Radical Art and the Political Author-Subject

Public Lecture by Ashish Rajadhyaksha

In March 2017, artist Vivan Sundaram presented a major public art project in Mumbai at the CSMVS, of which Rajadhyaksha was the co-author. Inside a massive container simulating a naval ship was an eight-channel sound work, evoking the February 1946 naval uprising in Bombay (now Mumbai). In addressing this moment in history as a work of political art, the Insurrection project speaks to a history of Sundaram's art practice. This talk will address the many aspects of the collaborative project.

Ashish Rajadhyaksha is a film and cultural theorist. He has published widely on cinema and contemporary art, and presented in conferences across the world.
