The Tasveer Journal

#20 Alchemy


A new issue of the Tasveer Journal looks at the history of a syncretistic visual culture that brings together photography and painting traditions in India


The early years of photography in India were marked by a reciprocal relationship and fusion between the medium and painting traditions. The Journal’s #20 Alchemy examines this history – with painted photographs from the first half of the twentieth century that were part of Tasveer’s presentation at The Photography Show 2017, organised by AIPAD.

Tasveer at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale until 29th March


In a Kochi-Muziris Biennale Collateral event, Tasveer is pleased to be showcasing a selection of works from Karen Knorr’s critically acclaimed series: India Song


Karen Knorr blurs the lines between reality and illusion in India Song by inserting animals into architectural spaces and heritage sites. This unexpected juxtaposition playfully subverts cultural spaces and punctures meaning traditionally associated with them, while posing questions about power, gender, colonialism and cultural appropriation through allegory. 


The exhibition is on view at Passage Malabar in Fort Kochi until 29th March 2017.
