Launch conversation: Personal Paradigms
As a part of our digital launch with Serendipity Arts Festival, we invited PIX contributors Kannagi Khanna, and Rajyashri Goody along with Sabeena Gadihoke for a conversation around domestic photography, personal history and family archives.
In the traditional sense, families are permanent or fixed units, and yet, through growing associations, we find that they are also evolving – riddled with secrets, new discoveries and myriad forms of coded expression around kinship. At a time when our affiliations to place, a language, a culture and hence history seem to be fraught with challenges, we may ask how to invent, intersect and construct an alternative self or community?
