About the Event
The session features:
'Good Morning' by Editions JOJO
'Indianisms' by Prashant Panjiar
'Sparsee-ing' by Abhishek Basu and Joyona Medhi
'Archivio Del Invisible' by Akshay Mahajan
Good Morning by Editions JOJO explores the phenomenon of good morning messages circulated on WhatsApp as a site for protest in India through the revival of a deteriorated Instagram archive. The book is a collection of good morning messages intended as protest by anonymous contributors & includes an afterword by Anisha Baid.
For the pre-launch of the upcoming book titled Sparsee-ing by Abhishek Basu & Joyona Mehdi , the artists will take us through their process & research on working with a found archive. Their photobook uses the photo archive of the Gazdar-Bharucha family as the starting point for enquiry into the life and times of a mechanical engineer from the industrial township of Jamshedpur.
For his self-published photobook called Indianisms, Prashant Panjiar reached into his own archive while also creating images in tandem with editing his old works. Prashant will take us through his book-making process which involves both excavating and creating, along with the risks & rewards of self-publishing.
In Archivio Del' Invisible by Akshay Mahajan, we traverse the labyrinth of history through archaeology, where each turn reveals the unseen labour behind every artefact, a tribute to the countless, nameless hands that mould our understanding of the past. This project is not merely a collection of relics, but a testimony from the silent stories of farm laborers, restorers, technicians, students, and amateurs, whose quiet dedication breathes life into the forgotten corners of history.
