Until very recent the cliche image of «India» in the European mainstream media was that of an developing country. Today, the discourses of a raising super power, postcolonial dependencies, ecological crisis, migration movements, nationalism and fundamentalism shape a new view of India.
Save as… India is a week-long project that presents documentary practices across different artistic disciplines: painting, performance and video art. In the framework of the India week at NTNU from October 1 to 9, 2011 it introduces contemporary art projects from and about India that investigate audiovisual archives, urban development, conditions of labor. The goal is to learn something about how to look at and engage with a multitude of complex realities without reducing them to patterns of perception that follow a set of pre-fabricated expectations.
