South Asia Panel: "Pathshala / Festival of Ideas / Truth to Power"

Shahidul Alam, Tanvir Murad, and Meena Vari (P)

Saturday, March 07 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Galleria III & IV

Photography was widely used in South Asia and other parts of the world from its earliest days. Where colonization occurred, photography documented it. And yet, for generations, survey courses on the history of photography almost exclusively, until recently, have taught students about European and American photography. From January 2020 meetings in Delhi, in collaboration with the MurthyNAYAK Foundation, SPE expanded connections internationally with photographers and scholars from India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Sharing the dynamic work coming from South Asia, the invited panelists represent the broadest range of creative practice and scholarly endeavor.
