Dr Neena Mand, School of Architecture and Built Environment talks about "Kaleidoscope of Indican Cities - Invisible Connections" at the launch of the Exhibition which runs until 30 November.
In a country as diverse as India there are multiple interconnected lives that can be observed at any given time in its myriad cities. These lives through their intersections and juxtaposition generate multiple images that may seem contrary. In the face of daunting complexity and the palimpsest of histories it is necessary to steer away from constructing compelling classifications or attempts to fix the essential character of Indian cities and abandon any presumptions and attempts to produce a representative view or cohesive identity of Indian cities.
The exhibition to be productive takes a less linear approach, and presents India cities with their irreducible difference that need to be understood in their own terms, but still provide invisible connections whether they be cultural, aesthetic or existential, observed and experienced by four individuals.
