'Taking history into their own hands, contemporary South Asian artists such as Nandan Ghiya, Gauri Gill, Jitish Kallat, Annu Palakunnathu Matthew, Madhuban Mitra and Manas Bhattacharya, Pushpamala N., Raqs Media Collective, Vivan Sundaram, and Surekha mine the uneasy history of photography in India as means to challenge outmoded narratives, share hidden stories, and make personal connections with tradition. They draw on a diverse range of sources, from ethnographic photographs made at the height of the colonial era to hand-painted studio portraits and stills from Bollywood movies. Weighing the influence of the global against the draw of the local, these artists embrace tradition and innovation as covalent rather than competitive forces. Making the US debut of several of the featured artists, Postdate: Photography and Inherited History in India deepens our understanding of the legacy of colonialism and celebrates new and socially engaged modes of image-making in India.' - from the back cover
