Experimenter

Experimenter presents Land of a Thousand Struggles, an exhibition on the South-South platform that brings together the work of Sohrab Hura and Prabhakar Pachpute. Titled on Hura’s body of work, the presentation proposes a lens to view politics of labour, right to employment and dignity of the people who are the original inhabitants of their land. At a time of shifting land, farm and labour policies in the subcontinent, the exhibition confronts the viewers with questions on disenfranchisement, inequality and justice.
