10 poster

Baithak Khana Narratives, a project of Khoj Kolkata, involved media artists who explored residential buildings of historical significance. Artists working in the Baithak Khana Narratives II excavated the records of the residence of historian R. C. Majumdar, the architectural blueprint of the building, the interlacing of multiple temporalities on its walls, personal stories of Majumdar, his memory of partition, and the contemporary state of the house and raised larger questions of historiography.
