#BombayOutsideMumbai - Finding The City Elsewhere By Sangeeta & Ratnesh Mathur : Talk 89

Date: 05-Jun-2021 | Time: 6 PM IST

INR 0/- PER PERSON (All inclusive)

The contemporary iconography associated with the city of Bombay as a Gateway to India (when you land on shore, traveling by ship from the West) has morphed into a surprising variety of meanings for the local residents of places like Prague, London, Manchester, Yangon, Lisbon and Colombo. Forgotten objects from the city have been collected from these places far away from Mumbai by collectors Sangeeta and Ratnesh Mathur. At our Online Talk #BombayOutsideMumbai, they share images from their collection and attempt to build a chronology around the serendipity of these collections. Their focus is on the juxtaposition of printing technology with the found objects of Bombay and the chronology of the city itself.

The talk link will be shared a couple of hours before the event
