Description

Join us for an artist presentation by Aanchal Malhotra, as part of August Fröhl’s Portable Stories programming.

Aanchal Malhotra will present “Remnants of a Separation”, an Oral History archive focusing on material memory. It is the first and only material study of the Partition of India, taking into consideration those objects that refugees brought with them when they migrated across the border, those objects that were left behind in houses and lastly, those objects that were lost in the midst of the journey of migration. Excerpts from the archive will be published as a book by Harpers Collins in August 2017.
