TAQSEEM - SEPARATE
Published - December 2020
'Taqseem - Separate' is a booklet exploring the divide within the borders of the Indian Subcontinent. A separation that manifests itself in the categories of citizen and refugee in modern nation-state formation.
Through these categories people oscillate between a sense a belonging and displacement. They allow us to understand the relationship between people and their land. This work explores language, landownership and divisions resulting from today's nation-states along with the concepts of trauma, safety, and hope.
