Cultural Memory Seminar: Andreas Huyssen on Nalini Malani Monday November 21st

Andreas Huyssen will present  “Shadow Play: Nalini Malani’s Work on Memory” on Monday November 21, 2011 6PM @ the Columbia University Faculty House.  

Nalini Malani’s work is influenced by her experiences as a refugee of the Partition of India. She places inherited iconographies and cherished cultural stereotypes under pressure. Her point of view is unwaveringly urban and internationalist, and unsparing in its condemnation of a cynical nationalism that exploits the beliefs of the masses. Hers is an art of excess, going beyond the boundaries of legitimized narrative, exceeding the conventional and initiating dialogue.  Characteristics of her work have been the gradual movement towards new media, international collaboration and expanding dimensions of the pictorial surface into the surrounding space as ephemeral wall drawing, installation, shadow play, multi projection works and theatre. She currently lives and works in Bombay.
