Between Memory and Museum: A Dialogue with Folk and Indigenous Artists

 
Arun Wolf (Author) Arun Wolf (Editor) Gita Wolf (Editor)
Synopsis

India is home to a range of folk and tribal artists, from rich and varied cultural backgrounds. Much of what we learn about these communities - who often exist on the margins of mainstream society - is through their representation in a museum. It is a space that constructs identities in very particular ways. This pioneering dialogue with 47 extraordinary folk and tribal artists from across India focusses 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?.
