Title

Residencies Insights: Artist talk and screening by Munem Wasif (Bangladesh), Artist-in-Residence

Description

Deeply enmeshed with the political complexities of the Bengal region, the artistic practice of Munem Wasif addresses the aftermaths of colonialism, issues of environmental exploitation, and the social repercussions of divisive border policing in the wake of globalisation. In this talk, the artist will discuss previous and recent projects that exemplify his working methodology, aesthetic criteria, and commitment to images—both still and moving­—that capture, convey, and transcend reality. The talk will be followed by the screening of Wasif’s two short-films Kheyal (2015-18) and Machine Matter (2017), which are part of the Centre’s screening series Faces of Histories.
